Reno, Nevada (June 5, 2024) – The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County is providing free transportation to kids 17 and under during summer break starting this Saturday, June 8 until school returns to session in August.

The service applies to RTC RIDE fixed routes.

“Now that kids are on summer break, they don’t always have the same options to get around town as they do during the school year,” said Jim Gee, Director of Public Transportation for RTC. “We know a lot of younger students will need transit to gain access to meals, high school students to get to work, and all students to visit family.”

This service will run seven days a week during all normal RTC hours. Children under the age of six will require a parent or guardian.
