Flamingo bus boilerplate

Here is all the information on shuttles. Check it before you go because things change. Missing is the shuttle from El Cortez to the airport for hotel guests only who sign up.

The maps can be put in a mode for easy printing so you can take them along with you.

Here is the schedule of the 202 bus. Print it and put it in your pocket, but also that will change on Sept 11 by a few minutes.

One issue is waiting at bus stops late at night. I don't like waiting along Flamingo late at night if I am coming toward the strip. Leaving the Gold Coast by using the stop in front of the Palms or leaving the strip using the stop along side Bally's there are no issues. Being dropped off at Ellis Island, Tuscany, Terribles, Eastside Cannery there are no issues. Sam's Town drop seems pretty good but crossing the street is difficult and walking back Boulder to the light means we are walking Boulder at 2 am. However, I walked after midnight from Eastside Cannery to Sam's Town solo and did not feel worried.

HRH - Hard Rock Hotel
The Hard Rock is set a ways from Flamingo. I have not walked that distance or waited for a bus there at night. In the daytime there are no issues and I walk it at least once a year for anAmerican Casino Guide matchplay run. If I start that run from downtown I can get to the Hard Rock by Bus and then walk back to Terribles. Hard Rock is on Paradise and so it is served by the 108 but only toward the airport so to use Flamingo to go to the strip, we have to take the walk

These sorts of questions can be answered by using this site.
http://www.rtcsouthernnevada.com/

where you can being up all bus schedules and see the routes.
There is a goggle trip guide where you can chart how to go from place to place and the maps allow you to look at at the bus stops.
It is a handy tool.
Also skimming around will give you current bus information on changes.
You can print the schedules you need from these sites before going. I guess you can access it on the right sort of phone as well. I am not phone savy.

Sorry about the verification. I dropped it, but I'm getting spammed daily so had to put it back. If you choose the anonymous option when you post, please include some hint of who you are in the text.
I like reading comments, but if you are coming from a link on a Vegas discussion board, you might better comment on that board (except for the LVA board which does not notify me of new posts.)


This blog is meant as a resource for discussion boards and not as competition. Also, the discussions will be richer on the discussion board than here.
