Why use the Vegas buses?
I really wish we’d discovered the Deuce bus on our first visit to the desert city. They’re such a good choice if you’re on a restricted budget and especially if time isn’t of the essence.
The Deuce buses are very easy to use and on top of that we’ve found them to be clean, cheap, air conditioned and heated. Another plus is that you can take the bus all the way from the south of the Las Vegas Strip to the Downtown area and back.
However, traffic congestion on the Strip can make it slow (It can take an hour to get to
About the Deuce bus in Las Vegas
You need to know what you’re looking for... not that they’re exactly easy to miss; the Deuce is a double-decker bus as you can see in the images on this page. Sit on the top deck if there's space and enjoy taking in views of the Strip as it drives along. It’s a good way to get an idea of where everything is.
When the weather’s extreme or you’re tired this is a great way to get along Las Vegas Boulevard. At busy times the bus may be full before it reaches your stop but they’re pretty regular. You won’t have to wait long at all for an empty vehicle to follow.
Where does the Vegas bus stop?
As you can see on the map the Las Vegas buses start off from the Downtown Transit Center and there are stops all the way up the Strip next to most of the main hotels. The quickest part of the journey is between the Sahara Hotel and the Downtown area as there are fewer stops.
How much does it cost to ride the Deuce?
The first time we rode the Las Vegas buses we did so because we didn’t fancy walking all the way to the
Hotel. We were pleasantly surprised by the price. We got a 24 hour pass for $7 which allows you to get on and off as many times as you like. (A three day pass is $15.)
However, you need to make sure you’ve got the correct change before getting on the bus as the driver can't give you any. This and the traffic congestion are the only downsides to using this method of transportation.
