|If you plan to visit Off-the-Strip Las Vegas hotels by bus, here is a list of hotels with their corresponding bus routes. Las Vegas RTC Bus Routes|
The Las Vegas Deuce on the Strip, also referred to as RTC Transit bus or CAT (Citizen's Area Transit ) buses, is Las Vegas' newest mode of transportation 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 get around. It runs up and down the Vegas strip, 24 hours a day and stops 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.
These 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 the Deuce. The Las Vegas Deuce is a 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 50 buses to see more of Las Vegas.
