The RTC’s U-Pass offers college students discounted fares


It’s going to be years before we see a light rail line in this town, assuming one even gets approved. (Please, let’s assume. We need this.) But until then, UNLV, CSN and Nevada State College need to move thousands of students around town, and not all them can afford or even want a car. Once again, the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) is meeting these students, staffers and faculty members halfway with U-Pass, which includes heavily discounted 30-day (only $32.50; that’s 50 percent off) and semester-long ($104; 60 percent off) transit passes good on all RTC routes. For more information on how to get a U-Pass, visit or call 702-228-7433. And keep thinking those happy light rail thoughts.
