RENO, Nev. (775 Times, NV Globe) – On Monday, January 23, work is scheduled to start on a new RAPID transit station being built by Washoe County’s Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) on Virginia Street, just across from the Peppermill Casino.
The stop will be a stop on the RAPID Virginia Line transit line operated by the RTC.
Level-boarding, LED lighting, real-time schedule updates, waiting area seats, weather protection, and other amenities are all available at the RAPID stop. On weekdays, the RAPID Virginia Line provides a rapid and practical way to transit the Virginia Street corridor from Meadowood Mall to the University of Nevada, Reno. It operates roughly every ten minutes.
“The RTC’s RAPID Virginia Line route is the busiest route on our transit system, so being able to support that ridership with the amenities and conveniences of a RAPID station is very important to us,” said RTC Director of Public Transportation and Operations Mark Maloney. “We know a lot of people use this stop to get to work, shopping, entertainment, dining, and more, and it’s time that we upgrade it to a RAPID station to encourage people to continue to choose to take transit.”
