    Staying at Aria 2 nights in June. We would like to go downtown for a few hours on a weekday night without driving. Where is the bus stop? I assume we'd cross LV BLVD. Do we pay for fares with bus driver? How about coming back? Saw there's a stop in front of Binions? Is this correct?

    Thanks.

    1. Cross the street, and there is a bus stop in front of the Paris.

    2. You must purchase a ticket from the TVM (ticket vending machine) BEFORE boarding the bus.

    3. TVM takes credit cards or cash. No change.

    4. The SDX bus stops every 15 minutes. Avoid the Deuce because it is crowded & stops at every
    hotel & takes forever!

    5. When you get ready to return, find the bus stop on the corner of Binion's & Fremont.

    For all of the fares & schedules, visit: www.rtcsnv

    Oops, forgot to tell you where to depart the SDX upon your return from downtown.

    Depart at the Bellagio exit. Same side of the Strip as Aria.

    I assume the TVM is by the bus stop?

    Yes. The TVM is right next to the billboard with schedules & the seats.

    I am biased, but I really enjoy the tourist buses (like the SDX).

    During January, I attended a meeting at the Bellagio for 2 1/2 days. I had free rooms & food downtown. So, I stayed downtown & caught the buses back & forth each day. I think that I spent $20 for a three day pass. This was not only economical, but it was a lot of fun!

    Best wishes!
