Whether you're a Las Vegas local or one of the millions of visitors who come to Sin City each year, you will need to know how to get around town. For the easiest and most budget-friendly option, leave your car at home and ditch expensive cabs for alternate modes of transportation like the Deuce.
What is the Deuce?
The Deuce is the Las Vegas Regional Transport System's double-decker bus route that runs up and down the Strip, known officially as Las Vegas Boulevard. The Deuce runs from the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino all the way down to the Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement Downtown. With stops at just about everything of note on the Strip, the Deuce is a great way to get around the city, especially for first-time visitors.
Even if you are a local, The Deuce is an incredibly easy way to get around the more touristy areas of town. If you live a fair distance from the Strip, you can take a short cab ride to your first destination, then drink, dine, and dance at as many hot spots as you like near the bus line, and then, take a cab home after your partying is through. Another option for residents is to designate a driver to park near the closest Deuce stop and then ride it to your final destination of the night.
The Deuce will take you to some of the Strip's most famous spots like The Griffin, Stratosphere Casino, Treasure Island Hotel and Casino, Caesar's Palace, and Bellagio Resort's famous fountains. This bus line is convenient, air-conditioned, and cheap running 24 hours a day. You can check to get a great vantage point of the city from the top deck and since you won't have to drive yourself, you and your friends will be free to indulge in a few cocktails. It can get busy at night and it might take longer to get you where you're trying to go, but if you don't feel like walking and could use a break from the desert heat, it's probably worth it.
