  • Date Launched: Feb 12, 2018
  • Date Ended: Aug 12, 2018

Summary

The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) in Las Vegas, Nevada has partnered with Lyft to launch a six-month paratransit pilot program. Through this program, Southern Nevada Transit Coalition (SNTC) paratransit riders can opt-in to receive Lyft rides instead of their standard SNTC paratransit service. Unlike the existing service, participants can book Lyft rides not only in advance, but also on-demand. The first $3 of each ride is covered by the customer and the next $15 is subsidized by RTC. Rides can be booked via the Lyft app or by calling RTC Customer Care. Wheelchair accessible vehicles are also available. The aim of this pilot is to provide an efficient, flexible, cost-effective travel option for RTC paratransit customers.
