    Riding the double deck buses

    by joiwatani Written Jun 21, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When we went to Las Vegas last year, we took the double decker bus because the view was better. We were at the deck! It is best to go up especially when you are travelling at night because you have better views of the neon lights in Las Vegas! It is very spectacular!

    the duce

    las vegas strip

    the "duce" bus runs from the south strip (mandalay bay hotel) to fremont street downtown. the duce stops at almost every casino hotel on the strip. as of january 2008 a single ticket fare is $2 and a 24 hour pass is $5. the duce is part of the CAT bus system and you can transfer to any other bus on the system. the main reason to take the duce is that it is the cheapest way to get from the strip to downtown. the only drawback is because of it's numerous stops it takes about 1/2 an hour to get from the mandalay bay to downtown and visa versa. your other option is a taxi but the fare from the south strip to downtown will be around $20 one way.

    McCarran Airport to the Strip

    by RavensWing Updated Jan 8, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cheaper than a Taxi

    The shuttle from the airport to the Strip is the most economic way to get to your hotel. It only costs $7 one way or $13 round trip. Or the Super Shuttle which is $8 to the strip. Either one is open 24 hours so you can catch them at anytime. You may have to stop off at a few hotels before you get to your own though.

    Airport shuttle service and walk-up limousine service available from Terminal 1 at Door 8 (outside the Southwest Airlines baggage claim area) and at Terminal 3 between Doors 1 and 2.

    I found that waiting for the bus on the Strip is just that - waiting. I needed to get from Bally's to Luxor and had 45 minutes to get there. We waited for 15 minutes and there was no bus. Then we went to buy our tickets for the bus and the machine was broken. We headed to the next bus stop, same problem, the ticket machine was broken. Not very convenient.

    Cheapest way from airport to hotel: Shuttle Bus

    by mingomatic Written Jul 6, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Once you get off the plane, find your way down to where the baggage claim is. Right next to baggage claim 7 or 8, exit the doors next to it, and find the shuttle booth. Its about $7 from airport to hotel. That's about $10 cheaper than a cab. Sometimes, the line is shorter too. There's no good reason why you wouldn't do this instead!

    Deuce Bus

    by Gillybob Written Feb 22, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Deuce Bus is one of the easiest (and cheapest) forms of transport for getting along The Strip and to downtown Las Vegas, including Fremont Street.

    Tickets can be purchased from booths up and down the length of The Strip. Ticket prices (valid February 2010) are US$3 for a one-way ticket, US$7 for a 24 hour ticket and US$15 for a three-day pass. Passes are 'activated' at time of purchase.

    Use this link http://www.rtcsouthernnevada.com/transit/route/deuce/Deuce(6-28-09).pdf for route and timing information, but be aware that timings are subject to traffic influences, e.g. rush hour.

    The Deuce

    by Muzzaa Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A bus that goes up and down the strip from Mandalay Bay all the way to Fremont. It costs $2.00 per trip, or $5.00 for 24 hours of unlimited riding. It stops at every major resort hotel on the strip. The only drawback is the gridlock in front of the MGM. It is a double decker bus, so you get a good view of the street if you are on top.

    Very cost-effective shuttle service running from the airport to Strip & Downtown hotels between 4a.m. and 12a.m. daily. They provide fast and good service.

    They will pick you up at your hotel and bring you back to the airport at the end of your trip (get round trip ticket).

    You can locate Shuttles: Terminal 1 exit the Baggage Claim at Door 10 and Terminal 3 Baggage Claim between Doors 2 and 3 and Doors 6 and 7.

    The Deuce Double Decker Bus

    Hop on - Hop off tour bus

    The Deuce is a city bus that travels from the Downtown - Fremont Street area to the South end on the Strip and back again. It is heated and air conditioned.

    You can use your Deuce pass on other city buses.

    24-hour pass $7;
    3-day pas $15

    Note: It is slow because it travels down congested Las Vegas Boulevard aka the Strip. And it is very hard to board mid-strip.

    Pink Jeep Tours

    Pink Jeep tours provided guided tours to Red Rock Canyon and Valley of the Fire State Park. The company will pickup from any Las Vegas hotel. Its a good way to get out and see these great places without having to rent a car of your own.

    Deuce Bus on the Strip

    The Deuce is the double-decker bus service that runs up and down the Strip 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This is a great way to get from the Strip to Fremont Street or to the outlet mall at the south end of the Strip.

    The cost (June 2009) is $3.00 USD for a single fare or $7.00 for a 24 hour pass. The pass is a great value, and lets you get on and off as many times as you want within a 24 hour period. You can purchase the pass when you board the bus.

    The bus pass

    by joiwatani Written Jun 21, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is better to purchase a week's pass or a three day pass than buying individual bus tickets each time. You save time, money and energy that way. It all depends on how many days you are staying in Las Vegas and if you don't have a rental car or you didn't drive your own car.

    Take a (Very) little break at Strip's End

    Excalibur Hotel shot, Las veags

    Between Excalibur and Mandalay Bay, there is an express north-south tram to beat a little part of The Strip journey. Crowds fill up in wait for the tram, although for those who are in a hurry, waiting for this 5 min or so ride may not be worth it. I traveled northbound from Mandalay Bay, saving a few steps. Just before reaching Excalibur, the Luxor hotel can be reached. Beware though, going back south to Mandalay Bay, the tram will not stop at Luxor.

    Ride the Deuce Bus!

    by JudiandBill Updated Apr 4, 2011

    The Deuce

    For $5 you can buy an all day pass, and hop on and off the bus from the south strip to Downtown and back. When I visited Vegas 5 years ago, the city buses were cheap, but dirty and we saw people literally living on the bus. Not now - these are new, clean and really a great value.

    Go upstairs and try to get the first seat... it's a GREAT view from the top!
