Las Vegas Deuce on the Strip

The Las Vegas Deuce on the Strip, also referred to as The Deuce, is one of Las Vegas bus service for both locals and visitors along the famous Las Vegas Strip. Run by the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC), the Las Vegas Deuce is probably the least expensive way to sight-see along the Vegas Strip.

The Deuce runs up and down the Vegas strip, 24 hours a day from the Fremont Street Experience in Downtown Las Vegas all the way to the South Strip Transit Terminal, while stopping at virtually every hotel and casino along the Las Vegas strip.

Deuce on the Strip stops are located about every quarter mile in each direction of the Vegas strip and are marked with signs or by bus shelters.

Las Vegas buses are more accessible than taxis, which can't pick passengers up off the street. The RTC Transit has 51 routes and if you'll be spending most of your time on the Strip you'll want to take this San Francisco-style double-decker bus that is dedicated to the Strip. It accommodates up to 97 people, it's air-conditioned, spacious and begins the trip at the south end from a terminal close to the McCarran International Airport and ends at a terminal close to Fremont Street. You can also take any of the other 37 buses to see more of Las Vegas.
