Why Transportation Matters

Transportation and Climate Change

Getting around Clark County using a diversity of efficient, clean, and safe options is crucial to tackling climate change. With each mile we drive using gasoline or diesel, we emit greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) that contribute to climate change. Transportation alone accounts for 36% of all GHG emissions in the County! To reduce emissions, Clark County residents and visitors can rely on more sustainable mobility options like electric vehicles and public transit to decrease the impact of necessary travel.

Making Moves

Electric Vehicle Registrations

Clark County residents are already taking steps in the right direction. In 2019, there were 5,600 electric vehicle registrations, which was a 68% increase from the previous year. We hope to continue this momentum and reach 50,000 EV registrations by 2030 and 100,000 by 2040.

Increasing Transit Ridership

In addition to electrifying our passenger vehicles, we need to improve and promote the most energy efficient modes of transportation including transit and bicycling. In 2018-2019, monthly transit ridership was 5.4 million. In order to meet our emissions goals, Clark County aims to increase the average monthly transit ridership to 7.9 million by 2030 and 9.9 million by 2040.

Leading By Example

County Fleet Leads the Way

Clark County is a leader in fuel-efficient and alternative vehicles. In fact, Clark County operates the largest alternative fuel fleet in Nevada. Hybrids and biodiesel vehicles alone, shown in the chart to the left in green and yellow, make up 55% of fleet vehicles!

The County also participates in the U.S. EPA's SmartWay program for fuel-efficient logistics and freight operations. Learn more about the SmartWay program.

Complete Streets Initiative

The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) has launched a regional Complete Streets Initiative to promote safer streets and make walking, biking, and transit riding more attractive and accessible. This will include the implementation of new policies and infrastructure upgrades such as protected bike lanes, wider sidewalks, bus shelters with more shade, and dedicated transit lanes.
