Operating on a 24-hour schedule every day, the RTC DEUCE is one of the most reliable transportation services in Las Vegas. The two-level design also makes this bus quite recognizable on the local roads. This line runs between the Fremont Street Experience in the downtown district and the South Strip Transit Terminal. The southbound service stops near major resorts on the Strip, such as the Mirage, Excalibur and Mandalay Bay. The DEUCE also stops at major retail centers on the Strip's southern trip, such as Town Square and the Las Vegas South Premium Outlets. When heading northbound, this bus stops near major hotels that overlook the eastern side of Las Vegas Boulevard. For example, this express route serves the Tropicana, Harrah's and Wynn. As the bus approaches its northern terminal, it stops at the Arts District, The Mob Museum and other notable attractions in downtown. Click here to visit Strip & Downtown Routes website. Having a sleek exterior that's inspired by light rail trains, the Strip & Downtown Express (SDX) runs daily from 9 AM to midnight. This bus transports passengers between the Las Vegas North Premium Outlets and South Strip Transfer Terminal. The Government Center and Symphony Park are some major points in downtown Las Vegas that are served by the SDX but not the DEUCE. Both lines have shared stops along the Strip, such as at the Paris Hotel and Bellagio. In normal traffic patterns, both buses are expected to arrive at their designated stops every 15 minutes.
