The Deuce Double Deckers Down The Strip
The double decker buses running up and down the Strip are called The Deuce and they run about every 7 to 15 minutes each direction 24 hours a day. The buses start at either the Downtown Transportation Center or from the South Strip Transfer Terminal and then travel the length of the Strip before going back. The gold color new buses are easy to spot and there is bus stops every block and close to most major properties. The fare is $2 one way or $5 for a 24 hour pass which is a good bargain and also is valid on all other bus routes. You pay the fare in a box on the bus or at ticket machines at some stops. If you are staying at a major hotel on the Strip or even Downtown this is a good inexpensive option to get around as long as you don't mind public transportation. With the Monorail raising its prices this is a good less expensive option although at peak times the buses can be standing room only.
