New Year's Eve Free Safe Ride on RTC Transit Services

Posted: Updated:

The Regional Transportation Commission and its Safe RIDE partners want people to avoid drinking and driving for everyone's safety this holiday.

Travelers can ride FREE New Year's Eve night on RTC transit services from 7 pm to 2 am thanks to the generous support of our sponsors who have completely underwritten the cost of the lifesaving annual service, now in its 28th year.

The FREE extended service is not in effect for RTC INTERCITY and RTC SIERRA SPIRIT which will operate on regular schedule on Dec. 31st.

The RTC Safe RIDE program was recognized this year with the 2012 Nevada Strategic Highway Safety Plan Award in the category of impaired driving safety. "The RTC supports the efforts of the Nevada Strategic Highway Safety Plan working toward the initiative of Zero Fatalities Drive Safe Nevada. We're grateful our partners are able to provide the community FREE transit rides on New Year's Eve keeping our streets and highways safe for everyone," said David Jickling, RTC Director of Public Transportation and Operations.

Our event partners are Renown Health, the Northern Nevada DUI Task Force, Reno Media Group, Wood Rodgers, Inc., Club Cal Neva, REMSA, Morrey Distributing, Washoe County Honorary Deputy Sheriff's Association, Reno Fire Fighters Local 731, the Reno Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority, Reno News & Review and AMEC.
