Vegas deals out double-deckers


November 27, 2005|By LOS ANGELES TIMES

Visitors to the Las Vegas Strip will see a sight more suited to London than the gambling mecca -- double-decker buses. The Deuce, which the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada launched last month, takes riders on a 4-mile loop from the South Strip Transfer Terminal to the north end. It runs every seven minutes.

A ride on the 97-passenger buses costs $2; a day pass is $5. Transportation officials expect the Deuce will carry 37,000 people or more, and they hope that, along with the monorail that runs along the Strip's east side, the buses will alleviate traffic congestion along the Strip "in a fun way," said Ingrid Reisman, a spokeswoman for the commission.
