RTC’s Club Ride program marks another record year in 2016
Record performance continued in 2016 for Club Ride Commuter Services, the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada’s (RTC) free eco-friendly program that incentivizes employers and commuters for using alternative transportation modes.
In its year-end report, Club Ride, which customizes commute programs for more than 350 area employers, registered nearly 10,000 new members who commute by carpooling, walking, bicycling, motorcycling, transit, telecommuting and working a compressed workweek, such as four 10-hour shifts.
Overall, members saved nearly $2.25 million on vehicle costs such as fuel and maintenance costs and eliminated over 7.2 million vehicle miles from the valley’s roadways. That is a tremendous increase from the $1.9 million in savings and 6.9 million vehicle miles eliminated in 2015.
