the deuce is a double decker bus the cost is 2 for the strip and 1.50 off the strip.
If you want to go from one part of the strip to the other part then look for the sign on the bus that either says south strip or north strip. The drivers are very helpful and patient. During 5pm till 7pm more buses are placed on the road but they can still packup pretty quickly.
If you are staying at a midstrip hotel there really is little need for buying passes. However if you wish to go to the southernmost part of the strip or to the outlets than you may want to look into it.
Except for the Downtown area, distances to where you may want to go are not within a comfortable walk. The bus system is quite good but often inconvenient for your schedule and taxis are relatively expensive so using your own automobile or renting one is really the way to go - there are always very good "package" deals on auto rentals in Las Vegas. Please see the picture for a general orientation of the layout of the city.
When arriving in Las Vegas....one can take a cab for about $15 to the strip which is cheap if you are sharing a ride with 2 or more persons, but if your by yourself I would suggest you walk outside the baggage claim and take a shuttle to the strip...they run every 10 minutes and cost $5 a person as long as your hotel is on the strip......not bad !!!!
For $5 per person you can get from the airport to your hotel in a jiffy. If you're alone or with just one other person, the airport shuttle makes sense. From the baggage claim area, look for the "transportation" sign and set outside. Pay at the counter and you're on your way. The shuttle stops at hotels that riders are going to, so if you're further North on the Strip, be prepared for a longer trip.
The best, cheapest and easiest way for us to get from the airport to the hotel was taking a shuttle bus. We bought a two-way ticket for not that much money.
We had to call he shuttle company a day before we left and they sent a shuttle to the hotel the day and time we wanted (no matter if there were any other guests taking the shuttle or not).
they have a new bus that runs up and down the strip and to the old town of vegas .
they come along in two and are it seems about 2 mins apart the ride was $2 each trip but you can get tickets for longer .
everytime you needed a bus there was always one there.
The easy way to get around Vegas is by the bus. This stops at almost every casino or every 2 casinos. The bus is only $2 each way per person, and is a lot cheaper than taking a cab and takes the same amount of time.
The monorail in Vegas is supposed to be the best way to get around Vegas, however, it's never running, and the rumor is that it jumped the track twice...so we found that the best way to get from one end of the strip to the other is to take the strip bus.
They run every 5-10 minutes, and it's only $5 for the entire day.
Most things are easy to walk to, but the scale of the buildings are so large that it's easy to think that you are closer than you actually are to a place, so if you plan on exploring the entire strip, buy a bus pass.
When you get tired of walking from casino to casino hop on the trolley. Makes stops at most of the major casinos. With the transfer point at the Stratosphere you can get all the way down town as well. Makes stops at the major shopping spots too.
$6.50 will get you an all day pass.
If you get tired of walking the Las Vegas Strip Trolley runs up the strip. It starts at the Tropicana with stops at all the major casinos and up town to Fremont Street. It also takes you to the Las Vegas Hilton & Convention Center. It costs $1.50 (exact change please). That's not free, but much cheaper than a cab or renting a car.
It runs 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. everyday every 15 minutes.
Traffic moves slowly on the Las Vegas Strip, whenever you travel, and in whichever direction. You can use taxis (and pay for the time spent in the cab as well as the distance travelled) or you can use the CAT bus system, paying only for the distance travelled (at $2 a ride). OK, so you may have to stand, and it gets a bit hot and sticky, but it is a useful means of transport in the city.
A Trolley bus system runs from casino to casino (you have to find the stops, often at the back of a casino, which can sometime be tricky), but these buses are cheaper than the CAT ones ($1.75 a ride or $5 for unlimited one day travel). In my experience, the drivers are bit more tourist friendly than the CAT drivers (but that might just be sample error!). The trolley runs from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 a.m. daily, approximately every 15 minutes.
FROM THE UK.by air,use a flydrive to visit all other
attractions,such as the grand cayon and other places
just walk/its great.plus you can use local transport
as a £1.50,will take you anywhere in vegas.
Ok this is a weird place to ride the bus -- it picks you up and drops you off in the MIDDLE of the block -- then you have to walk far to get a connecting bus. It's very confusing but you can get anywhere in the city for $1.25
