RTC RIDE routes originate at either RTC 4TH STREET STATION in downtown Reno, at RTC CENTENNIAL PLAZA in downtown Sparks, or at the Meadwood Mall transfer center. Buses travel outbound from these central transfer points and go to the outlying neighborhoods. The buses then return inbound. The schedules and maps of each route reflect this pattern

Planning your trip is easy

  1. Use menus to the right and click on "system map" to open the map showing all routes or click the System Map icon on the left of the homepage. Please be patient while the map loads. Using your browser plug-in features, you can enlarge the map (zoom tools), as well as navigate to specific areas to view a particular section in more detail.
  2. Using the system map, determine which routes serve your starting point and final destination.
  3. To review a particular route map and schedule, select the route from drop-down menu to the right and click "Go." 
  4. Major timepoints—and not all the stops—are shown on the schedules. Call RTC Passenger Services at 775-348-RIDE (348-7433) to locate the bus stop location nearest you. Passenger Service Associates are available 7AM to 7PM, Mon-Fri, and 8AM to 5PM , Sat; closed on Sunday and Holidays.
