New Rates

Effective September 30, 2012 the fares for the bus will become!/rtcsnv/app_4949752878


Strip & Downtown Express Service and Deuce on the Strip Service:
  • Increase the fixed route Strip 24-hour All Access Pass from $7 to $8
  • Increase the fixed route Strip 2-hour All Access Pass from $5 to $6

Note that the 5 day pass is gone, replaced by the 15 day pass.

I'm still trying to find out if the 15 and 30 day passes are all access for tourists as well as locals.  RTC never wants to let that information out in any public way.  I suppose they are afraid that informed tourists will get a good deal.

Fare increases for end of September

The bad news for tourists is the 5 day pass is replaced with a 15 day pass. The good news for seniors is that the huge rate increase projected was scaled down to a flat 50% so we can still get a good deal on the 15 or 30 day passes. Whether they are all access for tourists will be another pulling of RTC teeth to answer because even when that is the rule, the RTC hates to admit it to anyone and will never advertise that deal. Promised also are more buses along my favorite route, the 202, with a new schedule coming into effect, along with the other changes, on September 30.
