Riding the bus is a great way to go green. This month, the RTC is launching two new rapid-transit services this month. And for the first week, locals can ride FREE! Try the ACE Gold Line and ACExpress C-Line the week of March 28 - April 3.
The ACE Gold Line, Deuce on the Strip, Route 108 on Paradise Road, and the ACExpress C-Line transports passengers through the resort corridor and Downtown Las Vegas.
The ACE Gold Line will connect the southern and central portion of the Las Vegas Strip with off-Strip locations (such as Downtown Las Vegas and the Las Vegas Convention Center) as quickly as possible. The ACE Gold Line is designed to serve longer trips.
The Deuce on the Strip will provide frequent stop service along the core of the Las Vegas Strip while providing a unique vantage point. Due to the number of stops, the Deuce is best suited for shorter trips from one Strip location to another.
Route 108 on Paradise Road will connect the northern portion of the Las Vegas Strip (Riviera Boulevard to the Stratosphere Hotel) with Downtown Las Vegas. Route 108 will also serve McCarran International Airport.
The ACExpress C-Line will provide express service from Centennial Hills to Downtown Las Vegas, The Strip (at Spring Mountain Road), and UNLV. In the resort corridor, the express service from Downtown to The Strip at Spring Mountain Road will provide the ultimate transit connection between these two important areas.
