CLARK COUNTY COMMISSIONER PRAISES COLLABORATION ON NEW BUS STOP SHELTER
Clark County Commissioner Tom Collins recently praised the collaboration on a new bus stop shelter, according to a Clark County press release.
“Clark County Commissioner Tom Collins applauded the collaboration of local agencies that came together to bring a new bus stop shelter to Cheyenne Avenue next to the North Las Vegas Airport. The shelter on Cheyenne, just east of Decatur Boulevard, is now set back more than 5 feet from the road on land that was previously inside the boundary of the airport. The county made the land available for the bus shelter. The North Las Vegas Airport is under the county Department of Aviation,” according to the press release.
“The new shelter is part of the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada’s continued efforts to enhance safety at bus shelters throughout the valley. A safety study conducted by the RTC determined that the best and most cost-effective way to enhance safety is to move transit shelters at least 5 feet from the street, whenever feasible.”
The most recent phase of the RTC’s bus shelter program is funded by $2.3 million from the Federal Transit Administration and provides for the RTC to move back or install 150 new and improved bus stops and 130 benches and trash cans this year, the release said.
“Since 2008, the RTC has spent about $15 million on bus stop improvements that include placing bus shelters behind sidewalks,” according to the press release.
