Our Partners


   CitiCare has a long-time partnership with the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC). CitiCare purchases paratransit rides from the RTC, which creates increased paratransit availability for people with disabilities. We depend on RTC ACCESS’ well-trained and qualified staff to operate the paratransit system. This partnership makes the process seamless for the riders and guarantees that there is no duplication of services or “re-inventing the wheel.”

   Recently, with the award of two new grants from the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and United Way, CitiCare has begun new partnerships with community organizations that provide important services to Nevadans in need. Through CitiCare and the grantors, these organizations can now provide free transportation for people with disabilities in need:

   The Fund for a Healthy Nevada (DHHS) grant provides free RTC RIDE and RTC ACCESS tickets to people with disabilities in need who are accessing food resources through the Children’s Cabinet, Northern Nevada HOPES, Step2, and the Washoe County School District Family Resource Center.

   The United Way grant provides free RTC RIDE and RTC ACCESS tickets to people with disabilities in need who are accessing the services of CARE Chest of Northern Nevada, Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada, People First of Nevada, and the Nevada Center for Excellence in Disabilities at UNR.

RTC ACCESS is the paratransit service that provides door-to-door, prescheduled transportation for people who meet the eligibility criteria of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). RTC ACCESS passengers have disabilities which prevent them from riding RTC RIDE independently some or all of the time.

United Way of Northern Nevada and the Sierra works with community partners to develop long-term solutions in the areas of education, financial stability and health, as well as supporting safety net services. These are the building blocks for a good life -- a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement and good health for a more productive life.
