    If i go from Caesars to the RIO and back, would the $5 daily pass be OK to use if i can't board the free shuttle (Harrah's/RIO) due to capacity? I am staying at RIO, but spend most of my time on the Strip. Also, if i take the RTC bus back to RIO, is the bus stop close by, especially later at night? I never have taken the RTC bus to RIO, i used to drive, but is the bus stop fairly close by to the RIO or is the casino further away do to the parking lot etc.?
    I Googled Flamingo Blvd and RIO Way and i don't see a bus stop?

    Wave,
    The bus is the 202 which runs approximately every 20 minutes on Flamingo. The 24 hur pass would be OK and it is a residential route. From the strip you board on the south side of Caesar's and the map show's it stopping between the Rio and Gold Coast. It has been a long time since I have taken that bus but i think it is closer to the Rio just before Valley View. the bus to the strip is across Flamingo near the Palms. The 202 has 24 hour service. I think the area is open and the walk is from Flamingo to the casino which is not too far and I assume patrolled by security.

    Thanks Jimbo. My two options are the Shuttle and the RTC 202 bus.......not bad, and depending on the time of day i may and probably use both.

    Anyone know if the RIO shuttle allows 1 suitcase OR an over the shoulder carry on? I presume they do as far as the carry on, but what about 1 piece of Luggage? Is the shuttle a passenger only (minus a carry on) mode of transportation?
