The Deuce

The Deuce is a special double-decker RTC bus that rides the Strip for $6 for two hours. All Deuce fares include transfers on residential routes as well. The Deuce certainly is a unique way to explore new and old Vegas alike. Buses stop on the street in front of all the major hotels about every 15 minutes (in a perfect world) between 7 am and 2 am and every 20 minutes between 2 am and 7 am. Because traffic is quite heavy along the Strip, delays are frequent. Also, because the bus route has become popular among tourists, 24-hour passes ($8), and 3-day passes ($20) are available.

Intercity Buses

Greyhound, Megabus, Flixbus, and CoachRun (and a few others) provide regular Las Vegas service; the Greyhound bus terminal is Downtown, but other lines serve other stations (Megabus, for example, stops at the RTC South Strip Transfer Station). Visit the bus line’s website for fare, schedule, and baggage-allowance information. Cash and credit cards are accepted. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. The most frequent route out of Las Vegas is the one to Los Angeles, with departures several times a day; the trip takes five to eight hours, depending on stops. Fares begin at around $19 one-way, if you take advantage of the substantial discounts offered on the website. On Sunday evening and Monday morning, arriving an hour or more before departure is recommended.


Nonlocals typically ride RTC buses only up and down the Strip, between Mandalay Bay and the Strat. Some continue on to the Bonneville Transit Center. If you're heading to outlying areas, you may need to change buses Downtown. Mornings and afternoons the buses are frequently crowded, with standing room only. The fare for residential RTC buses is $2.
