The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County is set to begin construction on phase three of the Bus Stop Improvement and Connectivity Program on Monday, February 28. The annual program improves Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility at existing RTC bus stops.

Improvements are prioritized based on ridership and community needs and include features such as wider concrete pads to accommodate wheelchair access, providing room for future amenities, improving crosswalks and sidewalk connectivity, upgrading pedestrian ramps and driveways, minor traffic signal modifications, and drainage improvements.
