Getting around Las Vegas just got easier with the addition of a new affordable on-demand ride-share service being offered by The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC). "Trip to Strip" gives riders the opportunity to travel to popular Vegas hot spots without surge pricing and the hassle of traditional ride-share services. The RTC partnered with Keolis, one of its transit system operators, and Via to provide the service and app. 

Vehicles feature limousine-style interior; hold up to 11 passengers; are ADA-compliant; and come equipped with Wi-Fi, USB ports, and space for luggage. Rides start at $6 and are determined on the distance and number of passengers in the booking party.

“We know travel preferences are changing, and our tourists are looking for new mobility options," said RTC CEO Tina Quigley. “Trip to Strip is an affordable and dynamic response to evolving consumer needs, offering a transportation service unlike anything else.”

The service area covers the Las Vegas Strip between McCarran International Airport and Sahara Avenue, including the Las Vegas Convention Center, with plans to expand to downtown Las Vegas and south to the M Resort soon.
