Transdev and the RTC of Southern Nevada Launch New Partnership
Starting on July 1, 2023, Transdev is launching its new partnership with the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC).
This contract was originally awarded to First Transit. Since then, Transdev finalized an agreement to acquire First Transit.
As a result of the acquisition, Transdev is now responsible for the operations, maintenance and dispatch of RTC’s fixed route transit services, as well as system safety and community engagement. The RTC’s transit system provides more than 40 million passenger trips per year using more than 400 vehicles and nearly 1,500 employees.
“We are excited to work with RTC of Southern Nevada to provide safe, reliable, professional passenger service to the community,” said Susan Sweat, Transdev’s Chief Operating Officer responsible for all Transit operations. “We look forward to sharing our expertise and best practices to support the transition of their fleet to battery electric and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. We believe we will make a positive impact on passenger experience for our riders, based on our commitment to safety, service and sustainability,” added Sweat.
