Which RTC RIDE Routes are Affected?Routes 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 15, and 17 switch to snow routes when winter conditions make regular runs too hazardous. RTC RAPID and RTC RAPID CONNECT are not affected. These two services run the same route between the Meadowood Mall and downtown Reno's 4th Street Station.
How Do I Know When Snow Routes are In Effect?Bus stops not being served during snowy conditions will display an orange snowflake sign like the illustration with this article. These signs alert passengers to go to the alternate stop while snow routes are in effect.
You can receive transit and detour alerts by email by signing up for the free MyRTC service. Snow routes are posted on the RTC website and local TV and radio stations are notified when snow routes are in effect. You can also call for information between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. every day at (775) 348-RIDE (348-7433).
