    Thinking of WAX to downtown. Plenty of room for luggage?

    Yep, taken it repeatedly and plenty of room. Rarely do more than 3 or 4 people board with us. We have never seen it crowded, going either way. Love the WAX!

    Many of the WAX buses have luggage racks too.

    Great....thanks for fast responses. Our trip is tomorrow and we will try the WAX. One more question for you experienced riders... If we are staying at the Downtown Grand...which stop do we get off the bus downtown?

    4th and Carson. When you stop at the Bonneville Bus Terminal, your stop will be within a very few minutes. It stops next to the Walgreens on Fremont St, just short of Neonopolis.

    You are going earlier than the changes that are coming to that route on March 2.

    You might like stopping at the Walgreen's for room snacks.
    Also, you have the option of buying a 15 day bus pass for $34 at Walgreen's. This is all access and will allow you to use the strip buses too. Strip bus passes are 3 days for $20, so this is a bargain if you are going to stay 4 days or more.
    I'm thinking you are under 60 years old.
    You will have a bit of a luggage roll to the Grand from the dropoff near Walgreen's.

    Be sure to have correct change for the one way ride downtown on the WAX.
    For the return trip to the airport, it stops right in front of Binions where there is a large bus stop for many buses.
