RTC Discontinues Sand Harbor Service

Posted: Updated:
The Regional Transportation Commission has announced it has discontinued its bus service between Reno and Sand Harbor early.

RTC says the hot summer heat meant busses that were going to Sand Harbor were in frequent need of repairs. That, combined with a high cost per passenger meant it was no longer feasible for RTC to operate the route through Labor Day, as originally planned.

Since its debut in May almost 1,000 passengers took the route up to the lake.

The service was a demonstration project possible as a result of federal funding from the Federal Highway Administration’s Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Program. The remaining federal funds will be reprogrammed for another transit project in the future.
