Sec. § 377A.140
Public transit system in larger counties: Provision of on-call public transit system, programs to reduce or manage motor vehicle traffic, and other services requested by general public.


1.

Except as otherwise provided in subsection 2, a public transit system in a county whose population is 700,000 or more may, in addition to providing local transportation within the county and the services described in NRS 377A.130, provide:

(a)

Programs to reduce or manage motor vehicle traffic; and

(b)

Any other services for a public transit system which are requested by the general public,
if those additional services are included and described in a long-range plan adopted pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 134 and 49 U.S.C. 5303.

2.

Before a regional transportation commission may provide for an on-call public transit system in an area of the county, other than an on-call public transit system that provides the nonemergency medical transportation described in NRS 377A.130, the commission must receive a determination from the Nevada Transportation Authority that:

(a)

There are no common motor carriers of passengers who are authorized to provide on-call operations for transporting passengers in that area; or

(b)

Although there are common motor carriers of passengers who are authorized to provide on-call operations for transporting passengers in the area, the common motor carriers of passengers do not wish to provide, or are not capable of providing, those operations.

3.

As used in this section:

(a)

Common motor carrier of passengers has the meaning ascribed to it in NRS 706.041.

(b)

On-call public transit system means a system established to transport passengers only upon the request of a person who needs transportation.
