    Thinking of best way to transport 9 adults & 6 kids under 11 from Bally's to Downtown and/or outside of casino/hotel areas for dining. No one wants to drive and I wasn't sure how much it would cost to pay pp for bus as opposed to limo type service.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Deuce bus, 3-day pass $20 pp, runs 24 hours. $300 total OR

    you might be able to get away with 2 24-hour passes ($8) pp and save $60. ($240 total). The trick there is to get the passes when you first need them and not before.

    If you know you are walking semi-close by, no need for a pass. Wanna go downtown a certain day? Get the pass right then when you are actually ready to leave.

    Note: 2-hour pass is $6 but is essentially worthless.

    15 people at once.... those buses are often full, so getting that many onboard at once could be difficult.

    I would surely consider eating where you could walk vs dealing with transport. I wonder how much it costs to get a larger shuttle?

    I was thinking it might be difficult getting that many people on a bus at one time. I've been also looking at van service but seems to be $85 each way.

    Huh boy, I might have to reconsider driving! Eeek!

    Noticed that AVIS rents 12 passenger vans.

    Another question - will EVERYONE want to go to the same place at the same time? Or will some want to do their own thing?
