The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) is dangling a free donut to encourage people to ride mass transit Thursday.

The RTC is encouraging valley residents to save money and ride transit on the sixth annual National Dump the Pump Day. Park your vehicle at any of the RTC Park & Ride locations throughout southern Nevada or simply walk up to a transit stop and take transit to your destination, saving you money.

Visit any of the park and ride locations below between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m., receive a free Krispy Kreme donut (while supplies last) and learn more about transportation alternatives from the RTC’s Club Ride Commuter Services Program.

Parking is free and spaces are available on a first come, first-serve basis.  Additional park and ride locations can be found at rtcsnv.com, including:

  • Centennial Hills Transit Center and Park & Ride – located at 7313 Grand Montecito Parkway in the northwest part of the Las Vegas Valley, near the U.S. 95 and Durango Drive interchange.
  •  Westcliff Transit Center and Park & Ride – located at 25 S. Durango Dr., next to the Summerlin Parkway. 
  • Suncoast Casino – located at 9090 Alta Drive Las Vegas, Nevada in the Summerlin area at the intersection of Rampart and Alta Dr. 
  • South Strip Transfer Terminal (SSTT) – located at 6675 S. Gilespie St. just south of the airport at the corner of Sunset and Gilespie. Please arrive early because this lot tends to fill up quickly.

All park and ride locations provide service to  the Las Vegas Strip, downtown Las Vegas, the University of Nevada Las Vegas, McCarran International Airport and the Bonneville Transit Center (BTC), the central hub for RTC express transit service and residential routes (a transfer may be required). Valley residents can park their vehicles at any of the RTC Park & Ride locations for free and ride transit to their destination for as little as $2. 

Sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA,) the 2011 National Dump the Pump Day is a day that encourages people to ride public transportation and save money, instead of driving a car. Started in June 2006 when gas prices were $3 per gallon, this national day emphasizes that public transportation is a great travel option that also helps people save money.
