    I'm getting different information on this, hoping you can settle it once and for all.

    Does the shuttle between Rio and the strip go to Harrahs or Ballys?

    Also, does it run 24/7? What's the schedule look like?

    It goes to Harrah's.

    Shuttle runs from 10AM to midnight during the week, until 1AM on Friday and Saturday nights

    And they don't really have a set departure/arrival schedule, IE: no set times, and instead just gets to its destination property, unloads, loads passengers and goes... and repeats that all day long. Typically its about 20-30 minutes for a round trip.

    It goes to both. There are two shuttles. The first goes to Harrah's every half hour and the other goes to Bally's every half hour. Before gas prices blew up, they went on a continuous loop and even sent more if the bus filled and there were people still waiting. I only used it once after they switched to the half hour schedule and I don't know how rigid they are on the schedule.

    I took the shuttle from Harrah's to Rio , last week .... May 16......had checked out of Harrah's at about 11am , and was changing hotels to Bellagio.....decided to leave baggage with porter, shuttle to Rio for a bit as neither of us had been there ..... once at Rio , there are two areas for shuttles, one to Harrah's, the other for Ballys/Paris ...... took about 10 mins to get there one way
    Not sure what the schedule is like tho ....... However, found this info on the Rio website
