The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County will provide free transportation on its RAPID Lincoln Line and Route 11 transit services from Wednesday, August 30, through Monday, September 4, all day, each day to the Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook Off, in partnership with The Nugget Casino Resort. RTC will also provide free ACCESS rides to and from the event.

These routes serve RTC 4TH STREET STATION and RTC CENTENNIAL PLAZA. The RAPID Lincoln Line and Route 11 services run on 4th Street and Prater Way from RTC 4TH STREET STATION in downtown Reno to RTC CENTENNIAL PLAZA in downtown Sparks.

“This is a great opportunity to try transit with your family and friends to one of the region’s favorite events. With limited parking, everyone can ride these routes FREE to enjoy award-winning ribs and avoid parking hassles,” said RTC Executive Director Bill Thomas.

Don’t Drive, Arrive! to special events in our community this summer. There are plenty of alternatives to driving your car to events, including taking transit, walking, biking, or carpooling. Events like this help to attract new transit passengers and reduce congestion on our roadways. For the Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook Off schedule, please visit

The RTC’s administrative offices and RTC Customer Service will be closed on Monday, September 4, 2023, in observance of Labor Day. RTC transit services will operate on a Sunday schedule on Labor Day. The RTC Regional Connector will not be operating.
