    Down with the Deuce

    by marinarena Written Jan 31, 2011

    The Deuce is great way to go down the Strip-if you have the time and patience for it. Surely, it's a less expensive way to go around, as low $ 3.00 one way. However, it is worth getting a 24 hr access pass for $7, or if staying in Vegas for an extended time, consider the options as listed below:

    3-Day Full Fare All Access Pass: $15.00 (new)
    5-Day Full Fare All Access Pass: $20.00 (new)
    30-Day All Access Pass $65

    The double decker Deuce is highly popular and very crowded, esp at peak evening hours. One may have to stand, as finding a seat can be a luxury. Prepare to have patience because there are multiple stops along the Strip. Just ask my mama. She, as one who tries not to walk too much, wanted to do so because the long Deuce Strip duration (about a half hour or so from beginning to end). Feel free to chit chat or pass the time with a music player during the ride.

    Note:

    There is a payment machine at each stop to get tickets. Cards and cash accepted.

    A list of local vendors, including numerous Albertsons supermarkets, that sell Deuce passes are here:

    A child under 5 years old with a paying adult travels for free.

    Other fare options:

    Up-Charge with Regular RTC 24-Hr Day Pass: $2.00

    Route 108 (part of RTC Transit system) Single Ride $2.00

  • Chartering a Group Bus Tour to the Grand Canyon

    by Rosa_Diaz Updated Feb 25, 2011

    I’m still new to this blogging thing, you know weblogs, mommy blogs, how to create a blog…well it’s something that I have found to be useful in sharing my experiences and opinions on an experience or belief.

    So last year a friend of mine had her 30th birthday party in Las Vegas and as my memory has been fuzzy of all the fun we had out on the town, one memory will last within my brain for life. So there we were 40 friends and family looking for something exciting, new, and well relaxing as well to do. So Maria had a great idea and that was for all of us to go visit the Grand Canyon. So I did a quick internet search and found this website GlobalTransportation.us, where after calling them directly and discussed services and costs, which we found to be very affordable, we had a trip of a life time all set up and ready to go. And boy did they really come through and truly went beyond our expectations!

    The driver was friendly, clean, professional, and very knowledgeable of the area and history. We took a tour to the south rim, you can see by my picture how beautiful it really is out there, and honestly it’s hard to even put down words to describe the most eye-opening, jaw dropping natural sight I’ve ever seen, and truly a must see. So put it down on your bucket list. I can easily recommend Global Transportation to take care of any transportation needs you may have in and around Las Vegas, and especially the tour we did to the Grand Canyon from Las Vegas, as the entire (door to door) experience was great. So thank you Global and to our driver who catered to all of our needs.

    Cheap way to get to hotel

    by albaaust Written Aug 4, 2013

    We caught the bus shuttle from the airport to our hotel and back. The booth to buy the tickets is just outside the airport and is clearly marked. Like most other bus shuttle services buses go to a particular area so you have passengers going to other hotels and you get to see what they look like as a bonus. Our driver was friendly and cheerful. Bus shuttle $14 return

  • Strip Bus

    by mrandmrsdevlin Written Apr 11, 2005

    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.

    Getting around Las Vegas

    by bill_in_vegas Written May 27, 2005

    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.

    Easy, cheap and safe

    by jlanza29 Updated May 27, 2005

    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 !!!!

    Airport shuttles are cheap trip to your hotel

    by LostBoyPN Written Jul 19, 2005

    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.

    Bus Routes 301 and 302

    by Emmjai Updated Apr 4, 2011

    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.

    Trolley Bus

    by Emmjai Updated Aug 18, 2004

    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.

  • The Public Bus

    by naughtee_kittee Written Jan 14, 2005

    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.

    Trolly Sightseeing

    by raevnzno Updated Aug 7, 2006

    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.

    Tired of Walking Take the Trolley

    by Goner Updated Mar 26, 2004

    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.
