While we hoped that 2021 would be a vast improvement over 2020, change often seemed elusive. However, there were bright spots this year: Students went back to school, vaccines were easy to obtain and C-TRAN continued providing world-class service to our customers.
In July, we celebrated our 40th anniversary with contests and giveaways. Unfortunately, a large community celebration wasn’t possible due to the pandemic, but we did partner with the Clark County Historical Museum to create a comprehensive exhibit detailing the history of C-TRAN and public transit in the county.
C-TRAN launched our partnership with Transit, our official mobile app for trip planning and real-time information. And we announced the 2022 launch of The Current, our new on-demand rideshare service that provides door-to-door service for the cost of a bus ride.
In environmentally friendly news, the agency was recognized for our sustainability efforts, taking home the 2021 Clark County Green Business of the Year award.
Lastly, ridership is on the upswing after the decrease that C-TRAN—and all transit agencies—experienced during the height of the pandemic. While we haven’t reached pre-Covid levels system-wide, many Local routes have bounced back strongly, even surpassing pre-pandemic ridership in some instances.
While many aspects of life remain uncertain, this is unchangeable: C-TRAN will continue to serve our community with pride, because that’s “Our Community, Our Promise.” Thank you for your continued support.
