I was in Las Vegas from May 3 thru May 8 and I want to bring you up to date on the changes to the Deuce Bus. 

 

As you may or may not know, the Deuce Bus is the public transportation bus that travels up the Las Vegas strip from the south end to Downtown Las Vegas on the North. The buses are Double Decker and run 24/7. I personally love to ride the Deuce Bus when I am in Las Vegas. The buses are new, clean and very comfortable. The drivers are very friendly and helpful. 

Now for the changes. The Deuce Bus has raised their fares. The one way ride ticket is now $3 (up from $2) while the 24 hours unlimited ride pass is now $7 (up from $5). Since they raised the fares, they have instituted a 3 day pass for $15. This pass is only available from the ticket vending machines. These machines are available at both the north downtown terminal and the south end terminal, plus at the MGM stop northbound. There are also 2 other machines along the route, but I cannot remember where exactly they are.

If you have an iPhone, use the GPS maps and you can route your trip on the Deuce Bus and get departure and arrival times. It really helped me get between the Monte Carlo Hotel and the Rio Hotel.

 

I have included some new photos of the Deuce Bus. Next time you are in Vegas, take the Deuce Bus and relax. Oh, and try to get the front seats on the second floor. It is the greatest way to see the Strip!

Also, if you are looking for show tickets at up to 50% off. Try Tix4Tonight, here is the link to the blog post I wrote about my experience with the service. https://thetraveldoctor.wordpress.com/2009/05/12/tix4tonight-in-las-vegas-save-big-bucks/
