The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) has launched RideTheStrip.com, a website geared specifically to tourists visiting or planning to travel to Las Vegas.
The easy-to-use site provides a one-stop online resource for accessing information on the RTC’s transit routes along the popular Las Vegas Strip and transit services to and from McCarran International Airport and the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Later this summer, RideTheStrip.com will promote a new RTC transit app that will allow customers using the Strip & Downtown Express (SDX) and Deuce on the Strip routes to buy and use RTC Strip and All-Access transit passes directly from their smartphones. The RTC will pilot test this mobile-ticketing app to further improve transit services within the Resort Corridor, making transit more accessible, attractive and even easier to use.
A popular tourist attraction for its double deck views of the Las Vegas Strip, the Deuce on the Strip makes frequent stops along the Resort Corridor, minimizing walking distances. Carrying more than 28,000 passengers each weekday, it travels between the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in the south and downtown Las Vegas at Fremont Street in the north.
The SDX offers riders an express transit option along Las Vegas Boulevard to the Las Vegas Convention Center and downtown Las Vegas. It operates from the South Strip Transfer Terminal, a popular park and ride location which also services McCarran International Airport, and includes stops at other popular Las Vegas destinations such as TaylorMade Golf Experience and Town Square Las Vegas. It carries more than 16,000 passengers each weekday.
For visitors, the RTC offers a three-day transit pass for $20, which provides unlimited travel to attractions, shopping malls, shows and restaurants.
