OK...I finally gave in, and tried the WAX (Westcliffe Airport Express bus) on this just-completed trip. Here is my report. Had to wait about 40 minutes before the bus arrived. I guess I must have just missed an earlier one. For some reason, I was expecting to see a space for luggage on the bus...nope...just a standard city bus. Now, as for "express"? We made 8 stops before arriving at 4th & Carson. Some were quite lengthy (UNLV transit center, for one). Took just over an hour (70 minutes) to get to the [email protected] stop. Add in my wait time & it was almost two hours from my arrival at the bus stop to exiting the bus. Just be aware that this express trip takes some real time. For the return? FAR better! Picks up on Casino Center, on the east-side Binions. Made 5 stops - all of them fast - and arrived at Terminal 1 a mere 34 minutes after I boarded. Total transit costs to/from the airport? $2... (a guy at the Binions stop gave me his RTC ticket that had two hours left on it, saving me the $2 for my return.) So - getting to downtown? Quite lengthy. If time is a not a factor, it is certainly the most economical way to get downtown. If an hour is too long, don't do it. Going back to the airport? I highly recommend it!
