Free RTC RIDE bus passes
With U-Pass, enjoy free unlimited rides on RTC RIDE buses throughout Reno/Sparks
University students, faculty and staff have a new, free transportation option. With the U-Pass program, you are now able to use your WolfCard to ride any of the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) fixed-route buses for free. When you consider the costs of insurance, parking, gas, and vehicle maintenance, taking the bus can really save you some money. Additionally, the RTC anticipates the program could lead to less traffic congestion on campus, better parking due to a reduced number of cars around campus, reduced carbon emissions, and better public transportation awareness and ridership.
How do I plan my route?
To plan your route, bookmark the RTC Smart Trips website. RTC Smart Trips is a mobile-friendly website that features an online map with route finder. Search for the business or address you'd like to visit, click the origin button to enter your current location, and enter the time you'd like to arrive at your destination. You will then be shown a number of route options. Just remember to bring your WolfCard to ride free!
