RTC Changes Will Help NW Commuters

LAS VEGAS -- The Regional Transportation Commission implemented a major service change over weekend with the introduction of two new bus services.

The RTC's ACExpress C line debuted. It will provide an express transit route that will begin at the new Centennial Hills Transit Center and Park & Ride facility at U.S. 95 and Durango. The line will provide an express connection to Downtown Las Vegas, utilizing the carpool lanes along U.S. 95. The ACExpress will then make stops on the Las Vegas Strip at Spring Mountain Road and at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

The other major service changes involves the ACE Gold line which will provide a rapid transit connection between Downtown Las Vegas, the Las Vegas Strip and the RTC's South Strip Transfer Terminal. It will  compliment the Deuce on the Strip route.

Riders will also be able to purchase tickets through Ticket Now which is a vending machine. Also riders can buy a five-day pass for $20 and a two-hour pass for $5.

Information on all the changes can be found at the RTC's website or by calling RTC Customer Service at 228-RIDE (7433).

Routes 106A and 106B (Rancho / Centennial Hills) – will serve the Centennial Hills Transit Center and Park & Ride for easy transfers with the ACExpress C line; Route 106B, instead of Route 106A, will now operate in the evening hours
