South Virginia Street Transit Oriented Development (TOD) Study

The South Virginia Street TOD Study’s purpose is to envision the future extension of the Virginia Line Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) service to South Reno and develop the land use planning tools that will encourage a walkable, transit‐supportive development pattern that meets the growth and development needs of the region. The study will focus on identifying optimal land use policies that will enhance economic development and facilitate connectivity and accessibility. It will seek to build community consensus around land use and infrastructure to allow BRT service to succeed within the study area. Study Report: South Virginia Street TOD Study Scope...

Verdi Area Multimodal Transportation Study

The Verdi Area Multimodal Transportation Study will identify needs and transportation improvements for regional roads in the Verdi area. The study will focus on traffic operations analysis and improvements, safety improvements, pedestrian and bicycle connectivity, and transit service needs on freeways, regional roads, and regionally significant roads identified by the project team. The study will provide a strategy for developing transportation improvements according to adjacent planned and existing land use.

McCarran Boulevard Corridor Study

The McCarran Boulevard Corridor Study is being led by the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County, in close collaboration with the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT). Other project partners include Washoe County and the Cities of Reno and Sparks. This study will take an in-depth look at transportation issues and opportunities along the 23-mile ring road encircling the Reno-Sparks urbanized area. This multimodal transportation study will begin by researching and analyzing existing conditions along the corridor, including traffic volumes, safety, transit service, pedestrian and bicycle facilities, and land use. Next, the study will identify different types of transportation needs,...

RTC University-Area Transportation Study

The goal of the RTC University-Area Transportation Study is to improve connectivity, safety, mobility, and access for pedestrians, bicyclists, transit users, and auto drivers as development occurs south of the UNR campus. The project includes the study of multimodal transportation and the roadway operations in the area surrounding and within the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) campus. This study considers the current- and future-development plans slated to occur on or near the UNR campus within the study area in the coming years and will identify needed connectivity, safety, and access improvements for alternative-transportation modes on regional roads within the study...

Affordable Housing Study

Affordable housing continues to be an important issue in our region. Our community is growing so quickly that finding affordable housing continues to be a challenge for many of our neighbors. Having affordable housing near transit stops helps people have access to essential services and enhances their quality of life. The RTC Affordable Housing Study will look at ways to encourage developers to build affordable housing near existing transit routes. The study will identify locations near transit that would be ideal for affordable housing. The RTC will then work with its regional partners and the development community to potentially develop...
