I just returned from my latest trip to Las Vegas and I want to give everyone an update on the great “Deuce Bus” on the Las Vegas Strip. The Duce Bus is the double decker bus that travels up and down the Las Vegas Strip 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is run by CAT, the Citizen Area Transit. The Deuce route begins at the Fremont Street Station downtown and ends at the south end of the strip at the South Strip Transfer Terminal which is on the south side of McCarran International Airport. 

I love this bus. It is easy to use and the buses are brand new! You want to make your way up to the second floor and try to get one of the front seats. This is a great way to see the Las Vegas Strip. The bus makes frequent stops along the strip and you can get to any of the Strip Hotels with the Deuce. The bus also is handicap accessible. So if you have a wheel chair, you can ride the Deuce without a problem.

The one way fare is $2 per ride or save money and buy the 24 hour unlimited ride pass for $5. You can ride all day for $5. The best deal for getting around Las Vegas. You can also use the pass on the other public buses in and around Las Vegas. You will need exact change or you can buy your passes at vending machines along the Deuce Bus route. The machines take cash or credit/debit cards.

UPDATE 5-8-09: There has been a fare increase for the Deuce. The new fare is now $3 one way or $7 for a 24 hour all access unlimited ride pass. They have also added a new pass, a 3 day all access unlimited ride pass for $15. These 3 day passes are only available at the vending machines and not on the bus itself.

I took some great pictures of the Deuce Bus so you can all get a good idea of what this service is all about. So the next time you are in Las Vegas, give the Deuce Bus a try. You will Love it!

The Duce Bus in Las Vegas

If you need to get around the strip in Las Vegas, and you don’t want to spend a lot of money, you have to try the Duce Bus. For just $2 a ride or $5 for unlimited rides for a 24 hour period, you can see Las Vegas.

The Duce bus is a public bus, but it is clean and comfortable and best of all, it is a Double Decker bus. So if you are lucky, you can sit in one of the 4 front seats on the upper level and see the Strip like you have never seen it before.

They run about every 5 to 10 minutes during the day and every 20 to 30 minutes during the wee hours. But they run 24/7. Update to The Deuce click here I used it this past week and I loved it. So the next time you are in Las Vegas, try it.  Here is a link to my update page and some pictures of the bus inside and out. Click the link for pricing and unlimited ride options.
