Reno's RTC Launches Lincoln Line BRT Dec. 14

As Passenger Transport went to press, the Regional Transportation Commission of Washoe County (RTC), Reno, NV, was preparing for the Dec. 14 opening of the 4th Street/Prater Way Bus RAPID Transit Project, branded as the Lincoln Line.

The $58 million project, financed with federal and local funds, will operate with four 40-foot electric buses from Proterra. Other corridor improvements include wider sidewalks, bike lanes, landscaping and energy-efficient LED lighting.

The 3.1-mile BRT route, with eight stations, follows the historic Lincoln Highway, part of a transcontinental road laid out in 1913. The Lincoln Line RAPID service honors the corridor’s rich history with historic images on the buses’ exteriors and at the stations along the route.
One of RTC’s buses that will operate on the Lincoln Line.
