LAS VEGAS -- A regional planning group has zeroed in on four areas in the Las Vegas valley it says would benefit from investment that would ultimately lead to a better connection between people and their community and their jobs.
It is an effort to help people move more freely. Southern Nevada Strong is looking at many options like widening sidewalks, adding bike paths, even installing a light rail.
They are building a plan around where the changes would do the most good.
Getting around in Las Vegas without a car can be a challenge.
"I have to leave here about 9:30, (the bus) drops me off on Boulder Highway, I have to walk two and a half blocks and then I have an hour to spare because I start at 11," Paul Ramirez, who lives off Maryland, said.
The bus doesn't always run on the rider's schedule.
"If you miss a bus it's long and it's tedious," bus rider Kevin Stewart said.
