LAS VEGAS (KXNT) – The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) will operate its fixed route transit system on a Saturday schedule on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Monday, January 15.

Those heading to the parade are encouraged to visit the RTC’s community engagement bus to learn more about the On Board future transit plan and provide their input.
