The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County is helping the community to celebrate responsibly and keep our roads safe by providing free transit on New Year’s Eve. Scheduled RTC transit services will be free on New Year’s Eve starting at 6 p.m. until 2 a.m. on New Year’s Day.

This service will help the community get to their celebration destinations and get home safely during the holiday.

“This New Year’s Eve be sure to plan a safe ride home: designate a sober driver, use a taxi, take the bus, call a designated-driver service, or use a rideshare service,” said Josh MacEachern, Public Information Officer for the RTC. “Riding the bus is a safe alternative to driving or trying to walk home.”

Celebrate the new year safely and responsibly by using safe transportation.

Keep in mind not all locations are served by transit, so check route and schedule information at rtcwashoe.com to plan a trip.
