"The RAPID Virginia Line is the highest-ridership route in Regional Tranportation Committee's transit system. Extending the RAPID Virginia Line to the University is anticipated to continue to increase ridership while providing students, faculty, and staff with an enhanced travel option through the Virginia Street corridor in Reno.
As part of the Virginia Street project, there are five new RAPID transit stations near the University, on both sides of Virginia Street. The RTC has also made sidewalk improvements and added a roundabout on Virginia Street at the entrance to the University’s West Stadium Parking Complex to improve safety and traffic flow. The project also included the restriping of Virginia Street from two lanes of traffic in each direction to one traffic lane and one shared bus/bicycle lane for both northbound and southbound traffic flow. The Midtown improvements are similar, including three upgraded RAPID stations and a roundabout."
The University is always working to improve our facilities to better serve our students and faculty. See renderings and learn about our upcoming construction projects.
