Silver Rider Announces Additional Cross-River Trips for Laughlin Residents

Southern Nevada Transit Coalition - Silver Rider Announces Saturday Transportation for Shoppers

Laughlin – In a response to the closure of Aldapes Market in Laughlin, Silver Rider has created additional transportation services for Laughlin residents.

As grocery stores have been deemed an essential business during the COVID-19 crisis, the purpose of the new program is to mitigate the hardship created by the closure of Laughlin’s only grocery store.

The new program provides transportation for grocery shopping on Saturdays to Bullhead City, AZ. Transportation will be provided to two grocery stores in Bullhead City. Specifically, Safeway and Wal-Mart.

There are scheduled times on Saturdays for the transportation. The scheduled departure and arrival times for both stores in Bullhead City are noted below.

Silver Rider has enhanced sanitation measures for cleaning of the buses. The enhanced measures were implemented prior to the closure of the casinos and other non-essential businesses. Silver Rider has already instituted social distancing on its buses. There are 3 travel times offered so that social distancing guidelines by the CDC are adhered to. The safety and well-being of our residents in Laughlin and the surrounding communities continues to be Silver Rider’s highest priority.

The transportation schedule is as follows (photo attached) for each Saturday allowing for three different travel times. Reservations are required at least 24 hours in advance of the travel date. Contact Silver Rider at 702-298-4435 to reserve your ride.

We remind riders to be considerate of one another and be on time when the vehicle departs the Silver Rider facility as well as the departure time for your return trip to the Silver Rider facility in Laughlin.

The fare (round trip) is $2.00, which must riding the fixed route service to the SNTC facility for the Saturday shopping. Seating is limited. Once the buses are full for any Saturday, any additional requests cannot be accommodated. The Silver Rider facility is located at 260 E. Laughlin Civic Drive (adjacent to the Colorado Rivr Food Bank).
