Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The Regional Transit Commission has announced that it will implement several transit services changes and fare adjustments beginning Sunday.

Two popular routes will be extended: Route 206 (Charleston Boulevard), which currently ends at Rainbow Boulevard, will extend west to Fort Apache Road.

Route 210 (Lake Mead Boulevard), which terminates at Nellis during most times of the day, will have all trips extended east to Hollywood Boulevard.

Details on the new schedules can be found at rtcsnv.com. In addition, some routes will have changes to boarding locations, frequency and/or routing.

Also, the RTC is changing its fee structure.

A 15-day pass for $34 will replace the 5-day pass that is currently offered. The reduced fare discount offered on residential transit routes will be a flat 50 percent for all passes.

Reduced-fare day passes will cost $2.50, reduced-fare 15-day passes will cost $17, and reduced-fare monthly passes will cost $32.50. Reduced-fare passes are available for students K-12, senior citizens 60 and over, persons with disabilities and Medicare-eligible persons.

Customers can find further information on the transit service changes and fare adjustments that will be effective Sunday, Sept. 30, at rtcsnv.com or by calling 702.228.RIDE (7433).
