    `Towards the Strip. I will be at the Rio tomorrow and i know about the shuttle, but i can also use the RTC bus (202). Looking at Google earth, i can see the bus stop at the Rio, the place you get off (Caesars to Rio), but the stop going to the Strip is unclear. Where exactly is the bus stop on Flamingo Blvd. at Rio? Any help would be appreciated.

    Is that where i see a lady standing? It doesn't have a conventional stop like across the street. I can't see the sign. Thank you, apparently the bus stop going east is further west on Flamingo.
    OK, just looked at Google Earth again. The bus stop on Flamingo going east (to the Strip) is near Valley View, between Gold Coast and Rio. The bus that comes back from the Strip (Caesars to Rio), lets you off at Rio Way. About a block difference. Thank you.

    The 202-east bus stop you are looking for is actually in front of the Palms.

    I agree with paperposter...........the bus stop is in front of Rio near Valley View going east. It doesn't have the usual trademark benches, but there is a stop there.
