LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) - The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) is advising Las Vegas Valley bus riders to prepare for delays across its system on Wednesday.
RTC made the announcement in a post shared on social media Wednesday morning, informing riders that the delays were the result of an “alleged gas leak” at one of its bus maintenance yards. Due to the alleged gas leak, RTC said it was unable to start service as the facility was inspected.
“PLAN AHEAD: Due to an alleged gas leak at one of our bus maintenance yards, we were unable to start service as the facility was being inspected. Please prepare for delays across the system. We sincerely apologize for the disruption. Please use rideRTC to track your bus.”
RTC told FOX5 that Southwest Gas and the fire department inspected the yard and did not find a gas leak:.
“Staff noticed fumes this morning and followed protocol to keep everyone safe. The fire department and Southwest Gas inspected the yard and did not find a gas leak. This was a result of maintenance being performed in our yard, and we are back in service.”
