The Deuce bus service on the Las Vegas strip

Updated on March 16, 2011

The best way to travel on the Las Vegas strip

Whether you're staying at a hotel on the Las Vegas strip or in old Las Vegas on Fremont Street, chances are you're going to want to move around and check out all the various hotels and casinos in Las Vegas and all the attractions they have to offer. There's one big problem with that: Las Vegas is ridiculously hot. It'll take you about an hour to walk from one end of The Strip to the other, and forget about walking from The Strip to Fremont Street. It would take you at least an hour and you'd be walking through one of the worst sections of town.

The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada has created a great solution to this problem, and it's called The Deuce bus. These are double-decker buses that travel up The Strip, stopping several times along the way, and then all the way up to Fremont Street and back. It's faster than walking, and the buses are much cooler than the air outside. 

Prices for the Deuce bus

To ride the Deuce bus you'll need a Premium pass from the Regional Transportation Commission. This will get you on the Deuce or Gold Line buses. These passes are both inexpensive and easy to obtain. There are bus stops for The Deuce up and down both sides of the Strip (Las Vegas Boulevard South). At each bus stop you should find a bench and also a machine where you can buy a pass.

A two hour pass is $5, but the much better deal is the 24-hour pass for just $7. You can also buy a 3-day pass for $20 or a 30 day pass for $65. These passes are all access, so you can get on and off the Deuce buses as many times as you want. In my opinion, this is absolutely the best way to travel up and down the Strip and go up to Fremont Street. It beats walking, and it's faster than driving yourself because you don't have to deal with parking, which is both a hassle and very expensive in Las Vegas.

If you plan ahead of time, you can get reduced rate passes from the RTC via their website. To be eligible for the reduced fare, you need to be between the ages of 6 and 17 or over the age of 60. You will receive your bus pass by mail, so make sure to do this several weeks in advance.
