The Las Vegas Strip bus, otherwise known as the Deuce, has become incredibly popular, all because its bargain fares, and a large number of stops that makes it very convenient for you to hop on or off just outside the door of almost every hotel and casino on the Strip.
The stops are slightly different based on whether you’re going south (towards Mandalay Bay or the airport), or North, (towards the Stratosphere or old downtown Las Vegas).
Starting from Fremont Street (old downtown Las Vegas) on the North, the Deuce travels Las Vegas Boulevard all the way south, ten miles, to the Las Vegas South Premium Outlets mall, which is about 3 miles south of Mandalay Bay.
The Deuce stays on Las Vegas Boulevard for all but a few blocks.

Deuce Route and Bus Stops Going South and North
Here’s the official Deuce Stop map:
All of the bus stops going south are on the west side of Las Vegas Boulevard (The Caesars Palace, Bellagio, Aria, Excalibur and Luxor side).
Alternatively, all of the stops going north will be on the east side of the Strip (i.e. the MGM Grand, Paris, Linq, Venetian and Wynn side of the street).

Las Vegas Bus – Deuce Hours
This being Las Vegas, the bus runs 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Approximate bus stop times are as follows:
|7 AM – 1 AM||Every 10 – 15 minutes|
|1 AM – 7 AM||Every 20 minutes|
So from 7 AM to 1 AM, the Deuce will arrive at each stop approximately every 10 to 15 minutes, while from 1 AM to 7 AM the bus runs every 20 minutes.
Deuce Express Route?
A ride from the entire length of the Strip to downtown Las Vegas on the Deuce is a trip for only the brave, as a ride on the Deuce from Fremont Street to the southernmost end would take you well over an hour.
Previously, the RTC of Southern Nevada had what they called the SDX Express Bus from the Strip to Fremont Street, however they ceased operation of this route in the fall of 2020.I
