Just earlier this month the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada announced its new transportation option, “Trip to Strip.” The new on-demand ride-share service was feted at the LVCC with nearly 200 attendees who welcomed the Trip to Strip vehicle and Las Vegas celebrity guests who rode into the event.

The Trip to Strip service is an alternative ride-sharing option for small groups looking to get around in Las Vegas. It recently expanded to cover the Las Vegas resort corridor from downtown Las Vegas to the M Resort. This includes McCarran International Airport and the Las Vegas Convention Center.

The RTC partnered with global transportation operator and leader in shared-mobility services, Keolis, one of its transit system operators to provide the service and ride-hailing app. Rides start at $6, and prices are determined on the distance and number of passengers in the booking party.

The Trip to Strip app is available free in the Apple and Google Play stores and is integrated with the popular “Transit” app used in more than 125 metropolitan areas worldwide, including in Southern Nevada.
