RTC Chair and Reno City Councilmember Neoma Jardon is issuing the following statement regarding the passing of U.S. Senator Harry Reid:

“Nevada has lost one of the great leaders of our time. I send my deepest condolences to Senator Harry Reid’s family. Senator Reid’s leadership played an important role in improving transportation across our state, but especially in Northern Nevada. His contributions to our region’s transportation network will be a part of his enduring legacy. Senator Reid’s guidance and leadership ensured significant improvements to our community’s roadways and transit system, including securing critical funding for the 4th Street/Prater Way Project, improving RAPID transit service, and guiding the RTC to become the first agency in the state to put electric buses on the road.”
