RTC Mobility Training Center - Grand Opening

Entrance to the MTC

It's been worth the wait!  After over three years of planning, designing and building, the RTC's Mobility Training Center (MTC) held its grand opening last week.  Our office contributed to 9,800 square feet of murals for the project.  We're excited to see how this asset to the community helps southern Nevadans gain greater independence with mobility and life skills.   Per the RTC's website, "Mobility training is meant to aid people in developing the confidence necessary to travel independently" on fixed route transit systems rather than relying on paratransit options.

Angela's House is a bonus in the MTC.  Developed by Blindconnect, the "house" is accessed through a facade designed to look like an apartment building, and contains the rooms typically found in a residence such as living, kitchen, laundry, bedrooms, and bathroom.  According to Blindconnect's website, "The vision of Angela’s House is to create and establish a Nevada person-centered training facility for the blind and visually impaired to prepare individuals and families to live independently with access to services, education, and recreation."
