The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County is marking 19 years of helping people celebrate St. Patrick’s Day responsibly. Scheduled RTC transit services will be free on Thursday, March 17 from 4 p.m. until 2 a.m.

Take transit for free and help keep our roads and crosswalks safe for everyone on St. Patrick’s Day. No fares, no coupons; simply hop on and take a seat for free.

Keep in mind, not all locations are served by transit. As you’re making your St. Patrick’s Day plans, visit to check route and schedule information.

In accordance with TSA and CDC guidance, all public transportation conveyances, which include RTC transit services, require the wearing of a mask or face covering while riding transit through April 18, 2022.

The RTC supports the goal of Vision Zero Truckee Meadows to reach zero pedestrian fatalities, because even one life lost is unacceptable. For safety tips, please visit
