    The DEUCE

    by LADYTING Updated Dec 10, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    To get around in Vegas if you do not plan to walk you might want to catch the DEUCE. It is the nicest bus I have ever ridden on. It is double deckers bus the runs from downtown Vegas all the way up the strip. It runs every 6 minutes during the day and every 12 minutes at night. The driver gives all necessary stops with information about each stop. The cost of the DEUCE is $2.00 per trip or a $5.00 pass that allows you to ride for 24 hours (it also works on the other local busses

    Buses

    Bus stop outside New York, New York

    The buses in Las Vegas, also known as the CAT system, are good for traveling the Strip or downtown. It costs $2 per ride for the Strip or from the Strip to downtown. Apparently you can get a day pass for $5 but I think you have to go downtown to get it, so that wasn't very helpful. We took the express #302 all the way from the south end of the Strip to downtown Fremont Street and it was quite fast. We took the regular Strip route back - #301 - and it took about twice as long. Either bus runs about every 10-15 minutes.

    Make sure to buy a two day pass

    The train

    The fares for the train in Las Vegas are expensive to me, so as a suggestion, it is better to buy a two day pass. Per trip cost $5.00 so that's $10 per trip back and forth to your hotel but if you have a two day pass, you are better off.

    Catch the train at the MGM casino and it stops close to the Venetian Hotel.

    Catching a cab is way cheaper especially if you are lazy to walk. There is so much walking involved in taking a train. You have to looped around the casinos - that's their plan so you are distracted and will gamble...By the time you get to your destination, two hours have easily passed!

    MGM Grand Airport Check-In

    by Paulie_D Updated Oct 4, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On my most recent trip to Las Vegas, I was staying at the MGM Grand and heard about their new Airport check-in procedure and thought I would give it a try.

    Located in the South baggage claim area directly across from carousels #1 and #2, at the base of the escalators it was easy to find.

    The staff were very friendly and courteous and quickly found my reservation and went through the various options available which include one way and return shuttles with or without porterage.

    The whole process was very smooth and was reasonably priced.

    RETURN TRIP
    With porterage service to hotel $12.00
    Without porterage service $ 7.70

    ONE-WAY TRIP
    With porterage service $8.50
    Without porterage service $4.40

    The hours of operation for the hotel registration and ticketing desk are 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. daily, with porterage services available from 10:00 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.

    The whole process was very smooth and was reasonably priced.

    RECOMMENDED if you are staying at one of the group's hotels which include the MGM, Mirage & New York, New York

    CAT 301 Bus

    by alanh24 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The CAT bus is one of the easiest ways to get up and down the Strip. If you catch route 301 it costs around $3 to ride the entire length of the Strip and as they run 24 hours a day it's great if you don't want to walk.

    Be aware that they dont give change so make sure you have a good supply of Dollar bils

    Free Shuttle to Off Strip Casinos

    by truesunn Written Jul 11, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Barbary Coast by Carrie Ann Seal

    A free shuttle can be caught at the Barbary Coast which runs to Gold Coast. From the Gold Coast you can walk across either corner to either RIO or The Palms. Very well worth it if you are a gambler, The Palms is listed as the #1 payout slots and Gold Coast is in the top 10.

    The shuttle runs 24/7!

    Taking the CAT (Citizens Area Transit)

    by Rice_Paper Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    All I have to say is "THANK GOD THE BUSES HAVE AIR CONDITIONER"! HEHEHEHEH. When my friends and I were there, it was HOT and humid and taking the buses sure beats walking in 35-40 degree (Celcius) temps.

    You can find out the routes and fares on their website.

    Bell Trans into Town

    by Rixie Written Dec 5, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bell Trans is an inexpensive shuttle into town from McCarran International: it costs only $6.50 from the airport to the Strip hotels. These are shared rides with multiple stops.

    On the baggage claim level, go out Door 11 and head left. Buy your ticket at the Bell Trans window and then go to the Bell Trans stand on the curb, where you will be directed to the appropriate van.

    If you plan to take Bell Trans on your return trip to the airport, call them at least 24 hours in advance. Figure on being picked up 2.5 hours before your flight, to allow for other stops.

    The Duece strip bus in Las Vegas

    by yvr Updated Feb 22, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Also be aware that the Deuce bus is one of the slowest forms of transportation on the strip. It takes forever for passengers to get off and on the bus. I have on the bus and sat at one bus stop for at least 10 minutes while everyone asks the driver a question, how much, do you give change, where do I get off for.... or those wanting to get on can't because people are still coming down the stairs from the top deck, it is a mess and I for one won't ride one again. If you have all the time in the world and enjoy sitting forever on a bus then this bus is for you.

    RIDE THE DEUCE

    RIDE THE DEUCE

    The Deuce is the best way to see Las Vegas. Even though most attractions are on the strip, there is a lot of walking involved. You can buy an all day ticket for $5 then hop on and off as you please. The Deuce also takes you to Fremont Street.

  • GREY LINE AIRPORT SHUTTLE SERVICE

    by ddgrode Written Oct 5, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I reciently took a trip to Las Vegas during which my wife and I arrainged and pre payed for a round trip to/from the airport to McCaren airport through the Orbitz travel site. On arrival we did get the ride to the hotel, Golden Nugget, downtown. The day before our leaving Vegas and well over 24 hrs early I contacted Grey Line by phone and was assured a return ride to the airport was no problem. I aws even given a conformation number, 48400 and a 10:35 AM time for the shuttle. We were at the bus stop aat 10:15 AM . At 11:05 AM, no bus. The hotel enployee helping with luggage tole me the shutl never showed up mand two other customers already had asked and taken a cab. After calling Grey Line and being told the shuttle had been there I was tole the next one would be there at 11:45AM. St to frinish up due to one shuttle never arriving and airplane leaving I had to pay for transportation to the airport again. If you are going to depend on airport shuttle services, especially Grey Line, Good Luck

    next is the monorail that runs from mgm all the way down to the venetian.
    also taxis! sounds sily but you can get a taxi outside any hotel in vegas!

    If you don't intend on renting a car, and have plans on spending your cash on something else than a limousine-trip, there are loads of companies offering shuttle services to most of the major hotels in town. Look around as you get out of the main gate at McCarran Intl. Airport, and you'll see them.

    Bells Trans Shuttle to the Strip

    by tomruth78 Written Nov 28, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We did not book our transer for Vegas and ended up paying $5.50 with Bells Trans Shuttle outside the terminal. They do drop off in order of hotels, but we luckily only had one drop off before ours.

    When you land you will see how close the strip is to the airport, it almost looks like it is walking distance!!

    Airport shuttle bus- NIGHTMARE

    by Graeme_Webb Updated Aug 5, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you arrive in LV. walk out the airport and turn left there is a kiosk. Selling chips act as the fare for the shuttle buses, by your chips and had one to the driver and tell where you are going.

    ***WARNING***
    I bought a round trip to and from downtown.
    On the return I phoned ahead one the free number (as requested) and booked my pickup time. I waited and waited no bus. I asked the girl at my hotel reception to phone the company, which she did, only to be told that they would be there in 45 mins (luckily, I had checked in online).
    The girl at reception told me that these shuttle busses, regularly don't come down town to pick people up for the return part. AND a taxi from downtown to the airport is $35!!!
    Luckily I did eventually get picked up, and made my flight.
