Accessibility (5310 Grant Program)

The Regional Transportation Commission of Washoe County (RTC) is currently in the midst of revising and updating its Coordinated Human Services Public Transportation Plan (CTP). The intent of this update is to bring together human service agencies and transportation providers to deliver efficient, coordinated services to the region’s senior citizens, persons with disabilities, and those who are financially disadvantaged. This update is an opportunity to identify unmet transportation needs, reduce duplication of services, and develop a coordinated transportation system for Washoe County.

RTC, as the designated recipient for Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Section 5310 funds, must certify that all projects are included in a locally developed, coordinated public transit-human service transportation plan developed and approved through a process that included participation by seniors, individuals with disabilities, representatives of public, private, and nonprofit transportation and human service providers, and other members of the public.

The previous CTP was completed in 2015 and is due for a revision and update every four years. RTC is collaborating with a team of LSC Transportation Consultants, Inc. and RLS & Associates.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and limited restrictions on public gatherings, the RTC and LSC Transportation Consultants invite you to view a the video presentation below.

Throughout the planning process, there will be additional opportunities to provide input before the plan is completed. If you would like to be notified of future opportunities, please provide your email address here.

RTC  would like to thank you for your time and participation during these challenging times.
