    I've taken the Wax to and from the airport to return a car rental and also out to Suncoast.

    Where exactly do we catch the WAX on Tropicana & LV Blvd to return downtown? I thought when I returned from the airport after returning a car to head downtown, the bus made a stop on Trop right next to NYNY. Is that the only Strip pickup point?

    Thanks, not a mass transit guy very often.:confused2:

    The stop is on Tropicana on the west side of LV Blvd, very close to the registration entrance at NYNY.

    Yes. West side of LV Blvd. South side of NYNY hotel.

    On the way from downtown to McCarran, it stops on the east side LV Blvd. Along Tropicana -- next to Tropicana Hotel.

    The WAX must use the 201 stops at those locations, I guess. Good to know :)

    You got it right; many bus routes share the same stop.

    Is there a WAX sign posted? Usually stops serving multiple buses each have an identifying sign there. I never noticed if there was one or not.

    I don't recall if there's much of a sign, but the WAX and 201 schedules are on a pole at the stop. Saying "you can't miss it" is usually the kiss of death, but it would be nearly impossible to do so.
