Please click here to view the map for detailed information.


Take the SIERRA SPIRIT route to Wolf Pack home football games and avoid traffic and parking hassles.

When Nevada has a home night football game, the SIERRA SPIRIT will have extended hours. The service links the downtown area to campus. Typically it operates from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day. However, for night home football games the service will continue to operate until midnight. Buses come every 15 to 20 minutes, and the fare is 25 cents or 10 cents for those qualifying for a reduced rate.

The SIERRA SPIRIT route takes you from Reno to the University of Nevada, all around downtown, and back. The electric bus on the SIERRA SPIRIT route operates every day of the year including all holidays.

The electric buses offer free WiFi so you can tell your social media followers about this great service to the game!

Sometimes special events or construction will require a detour of the route. If we have to temporarily close a bus stop, we’ll post notices letting you know where to catch the bus. For downtown construction project updates, please visit the City of Reno website. 

RTC thanks Nevada Wolf Pack Athletics for sponsoring the extended hours for the Wolf Pack home games.
