In a response to a reduction in federal funding, changes must be made to the Silver Rider Mesquite service. Specifically elimination of the Thursday trips to St. George and reduction of the Silver Rider Las Vegas bus to Mondays only (excluding holidays).

Thursday, September 24th, will be the last day that Silver Rider will provide transportation to St. George Utah. The last Friday Las Vegas bus will occur on Friday, September 25th.

Reservations on all of Silver Rider's senior transportation and express transportation must be made at least 24 hours in advance of date of travel. Reservations for Mondays must be made by 4:00 P.M. the Friday prior. Passengers could experience longer wait times as a smaller number of vehicles will be in service daily Monday-Friday.

Silver Rider's fixed route transportation is not affected. Fixed route service will continue to operate at the current levels of service hours provided.

If you have any questions regarding any of Silver Rider's programs, please contact Silver Rider at 702·346-7006.
