As part of the Virginia Street Project, the project team has temporarily added more than 80 parking spots to the Midtown area during construction to support businesses. Many of these parking spots are within the construction zone, near Sticks center.

“The RTC is committed to providing support to Midtown businesses during construction,” said RTC Executive Director Lee Gibson.

Customers can also take advantage of the project team’s Lyft discount to Midtown. Anyone riding Lyft can use the code RAPID to save 50% off a trip to Midtown, up to $10 off.

About the Virginia Street Bus RAPID Transit Extension project:

This more-than-$80-million investment in our community will create connectivity between Midtown Reno and the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR), and will support economic development, enhance safety, and improve livability in the corridor.

The project addresses critical transportation needs including improving transit operations by extending the Virginia Line RAPID transit service to UNR, correcting ADA sidewalk deficiencies, improving traffic operations and beautifying the corridor. Up to 300 trees will be added to the corridor as part of the project.

The project is funded with fuel tax revenue, federal and private funds.
