Las Vegas Deuce On The Strip

If you are looking for a convenient and inexpensive mode of transportation to sight-see along the Strip, the Las Vegas Deuce on the Strip (The Deuce for short) is a popular choice for both locals and visitors.

The Deuce, operated by the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC), runs the length of the Vegas Strip 24 hours a day. 

There are stops at almost every hotel and casino, from the Mandalay Bay all the way to the Fremont Street Experience in Downtown Las Vegas.

Las Vegas Deuce buses are more accessible than taxis since taxis are not allowed to pick up passengers off the street. Stops (marked by signs or bus shelters) are located approximately every quarter mile in each direction along the Strip.

The double decker buses are air conditioned and accommodate up to 97 people.

Where to Purchase a Deuce Pass

Machines are located at various Strip & Downtown Express stops, Centennial Express stops, the Bonneville Transit Center (BTC), the South Strip Transfer Terminal (SSTT), the Centennial Hills Transit Center and Park & Ride, and the Westcliff Transit Center.

When purchased at a Ticket Vending Machine (TVM), Deuce passes are validated at the time of issue. This means that a 2-Hour All Access Pass is valid for 2 hours from the time of purchase. 30-Day and 15-Day passes from BTC and SSTT TVMs are not validated upon issuance.

  2. The screen will display the correct amount to pay. Select the payment type: cast, credit card, or debit card.

  4. Validate a 30-Day pass by inserting it into the slot marked “Validate Card”.

Note: TVMs only accept exact change.
