    We're booked for the Kings Tournament and then want to go to Fremont Street. I'm figuring the best way would be a cab. Any other alternatives? How much would the cab be?

    $20-$25, depending on the time of day. Don't walk it.

    Rollllllllllllllllllllllllin the Deuce!

    The Deuce (double-decker bus) and SDX (longer, single-decker bus) will get you there more slowly, but an order of magnitude cheaper.

    I like the Deuce - but it takes ~30-40 minutes to get from the south strip to Fremont. You get a tour of what's in between the Strip and Downtown. Whether that's a good thing or not, I'm not sure.

    Also, you'll need to cross over Las Vegas Blvd to MGM and pick it up on the north bound side of the strip.

    The bus would be a great option. And while the SDX and Deuce are both viable options, I would strongly recommend the WAX bus from where you'll be on Tropicana. It's only $2, and will get you downtown faster than the SDX.
    Check out rtcsnv.com for time tables and maps.

    One hour between buses....check schedule on rtcsnv website.

    Yup, forget the limo, forget the cab, forget the DEUCE even...

    take the WAX - the beautiful two dollar Westlake Express.

    It's a 3 minute walk from Excalibur across the walkway to NYNY and down to street level on Tropicana, just west of the lights.

    23 minutes later you are getting off at Fremont.
