                                                 Rationale
                                                 The Alternatives Analysis study completed by
                                                 the Red Rock Corridor Commission in 2007,
                                                 lists construction of Park & Ride facilities as
                                                 necessary for success of short- and long-term
                                                 transit solutions in the Corridor.

                                                 commuter bus service and, eventually,
