There are multiple ways to purchase RTC Transit passes in Las Vegas. It's also important to mention that the way you purchase your RTC transit pass will determine when your pass becomes effective.
For example, when you buy your pass at a Ticket Vending Machine (TVM), one of the vendors listed below or at Bonneville Transit Center or the RTC's Administrative office building, those transit passes are validated at the time of issue when it is purchased to ensure the pass is valid when boarding any of the RTC buses. That means a 24 hour All Access Pass is valid 24 hour from time of purchase.
The other option (and the recommended option) if you plan to use your pass at a later day, is to purchase your pass using the rideRTC app. Passes purchased using the rideRTC app are delivered to your mobile wallet on your smartphone within the app. You must then activate your pass when you want to use it, before boarding and showing the pass on your smartphone to the bus driver.
Note: Most passes purchased through rideRTC require the customer to activate the pass prior to use. If the pass is not activated immediately, it will remain in the customer’s account for 30 days from the date of purchase before it auto-activates.
The 15 and 30-day passes are the only passes that activate upon purchase through rideRTC.
