About the On Board Plan

The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) started developing new transportation-related solutions to help meet the needs of our growing community and launched On Board as a comprehensive mobility plan for Southern Nevada.  With substantial community and stakeholder input, the visionary plan will identify how enhancements to the current bus system, new high capacity transit services and emerging transportation technologies can improve future mobility and accessibility for our residents and visitors.

We now need you to tell us which strategies and services are most important to you.

Join us to review our draft mobility plan in person:
Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2020
8:30 a.m. or 4:30 p.m.

QUESTION 1 OF 8

Build High Capacity Transit System

High Capacity Transit (HCT) provides faster, more frequent and convenient service for passengers on high demand routes. HCT includes Light Rail (LRT), Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), which is light rail-like service provided with buses, and Rapid Bus, which consists of a mix of transit measures. HCT also generates economic development for the region and along the corridors where it operates. On Board could build approximately 200 miles of HCT in Southern Nevada on 18 different routes over 10-20 years.

  • Phase One Projects
    • Charleston Boulevard (LRT or BRT)
    • Cross-Valley Connector (BRT or LRT on Boulder Highway-Flamingo-Decatur]
    • North 5th Street (BRT or LRT)
    • 6 Rapid Bus Lines (Rancho, Craig, Nellis, Eastern, Sunset, Paradise)
  • Phase Two Projects
    • Sahara BRT
    • Craig Road BRT
    • Eastern Avenue BRT
    • 6 Rapid Bus Lines (Jones/Rainbow, Tropicana/MLK, Nellis/Stephanie, North Las Vegas Blvd, South Las Vegas Blvd.)
  • Long-term Project
    • Resort Corridor rail-based transit (Euro Tram) between Downtown Las Vegas and McCarran Intl Airport via the Strip

QUESTION 2 OF 8

Expand Transit Service to Maximize Access to Jobs and Housing

As Southern Nevada continues to grow, there will be a need for more robust transit services. On Board seeks to increase service in the region in line with this growth and expand service to new areas, with service tailored to match local needs and demands. This will mean frequent service for longer hours in many areas, as well as new approaches such as on-demand services and partnerships with companies like Uber and Lyft.

On Board’s goal is to expand transit service so that 75% of the region’s residents are within a ½ mile of bus service, and 100% of the region will have access to some type of public transportation service.

  • Improve and expand transit access and service quality
    • Develop regional service goals
    • Expand frequent transit network in high demand areas
    • Implement frequency and operating hours improvements on existing service.
  • Pilot/develop new service models for low density or low demand areas
    • Rideshare partnerships in first mile/last mile connections to transit in suburban areas
    • Micro-circulator zones with suburban express connectors to high frequency service or major transit hubs
    • Rideshare partnership for non-suburban first mile/last mile services
  • Develop Service buy-up options
  • Transit fare capping program
  • Reduced fare program for students

Make All Travel Options Safer and More Secure

On Board emphasizes safety and security as core values for RTC’s operations and planning. The plan calls for additional lighting, shelters, and other safety features for pedestrians and transit users and increases the overall presence of security personnel. On Board also recommends implementing active monitoring of cameras on buses and at stops, and developing intelligent systems to reduce potential security incidents. The plan will also identify car crash hot spots and look for ways to reduce them.

  • Traffic crash review and prevention program
  • Bus stop safety & security improvements
    • Accelerate efforts to move bus stops back from fast-moving traffic
    • Install bollards at high-volume stops with fast-moving traffic
    • Install emergency blue Light Call Boxes at High Risk Stop Locations
  • Utilize established safety and crime-prevention design strategies on transit facilities
  • On-bus security enhancements & officer presence
    • Expand transit watch program
    • Ensure appropriate treatment of transit-related criminal activity
    • Develop technology-based active security monitoring at bus stops

QUESTION 4 OF 8

Make Short Trips Easier

On Board will make it easier and safer to walk and ride bikes in Southern Nevada. The plan recommends building “Complete Streets” that meet the needs of all types of travelers including people who walk, ride bikes, take the bus, and drive. On Board will provide features like shade, landscaping, and seating to make trips more comfortable. The plan also includes the creation of mobility hubs, or centers to combine several transportation options and provide a neighborhood gathering space for commercial and residential life.

  • Implement expanded Complete Streets program
  • Implement a walkability infrastructure and education program
  • Improve amenities at bus stops
  • Make crosswalk improvements along major corridors
  • Develop mid-block pedestrian crossings at long block segments and in high-traffic areas
  • Develop regional mobility hubs
  • Develop neighborhood mobility hubs

QUESTION 5 OF 8

Expand Service for Seniors, Veterans and People with Disabilities

While the RTC currently provides services targeted to seniors, veterans and people with disabilities, On Board will go beyond existing programs to expand transportation services to more areas so they can serve more people. Recommendations include expanding service areas, more on-demand options and new technologies to make it easier to plan, book and pay for trips.

  • Double Silver STAR service for seniors
  • Double Flexible Demand Response (FDR) service areas for seniors
  • Double service for veterans
  • Provide full regional coverage for people with disabilities (Paratransit)
  • Provide app-based reservations and fare payment for dedicated services

Improve Connections to Major Destinations

On Board will improve connections to major regional destinations including McCarran International Airport as well as large job centers and event venues. These routes will be designed to connect residents and visitors directly to important locations using a combination of express bus routes, commuter services, and game day/event shuttles.

  • Implement Regional Express Routes to Resort Corridor or Downtown
  • Improve Commuter Facilities & Services
    • Develop Park and Ride Lots with Express Service Connections to Major Destinations

QUESTION 7 OF 8

Provide Reliable Transit for Resort Corridor Employees

Over 30% of the region’s jobs are along the “Resort Corridor.” A large proportion of employees who work at the resorts must enter and exit through “back-of-house” entrances that are not well served by transit. On Board will develop routes and public transit services that operate directly to and from the Resort Corridor, with short waits and convenient and reliable service to employee entrances.

  • Develop Express Shuttles to Resort Corridor and Downtown Mobility Hubs
  • Develop Direct Service Shuttles to “Back of House” Employee Entrances
  • Construct Pedestrian Connections for Grade-Separated “Back of House” Locations on West Side of Strip
  • Develop Mobility Hubs Focused on Resort Corridor & Downtown Connections

Leverage Technology to Improve Mobility

As technology changes transportation, RTC will seek out the most promising innovations to help move Southern Nevada. On Board projects will make it easier to plan, book and pay for trips including options like real-time bus arrival information and expanded smart phone programs to pay for and plan trips on transit, rideshare, bikeshare, and other new services. On Board also proposes expanding our use of clean fuel technologies, including a public electric vehicle charging network, and transitioning RTC’s buses to an all-electric transit fleet.

  • Provide real-time arrival information at major transit stops
  • Improve payment options and information sharing
  • Implement “Mobility as a Service” program
  • Develop public solar electric vehicle charging network
  • Shift to electric transit vehicles
  • Expand solar charging for RTC’s transit vehicles and facilities
