    What CET properties offer buses/shuttles to the Rio if any during the WSOP?

    I think all their strip properties regularly shuttle to the Rio. Last time I actually read one of their signs, though, was at Ballys back in January and I know I saw a sign fro the Rio shuttle there

    Just Bally's and Harrah's from what I recall.

    Also Boyd runs a shuttle to the Gold Coast that picks up at the back of Bally's. Since Cromwell is about done, the stop may have moved back to that side of Flamingo.

    Depending on what events/times you're playing, using the shuttle may be tough. I dunno CET ups capacity for these things during the WSOP, which typically ~30 people max per half hour. About 30 ppl for the Gold Coast shuttle too.

    Yeah, it has been years since I looked for that shuttle. I remember getting on it at Flamingo, but that was many years ago. No doubt your info is more up to date than mine!

    If you are a poker player, thats the best place to stay. They have wsop rates and usually around $80 a nite. Even though you arent playing in any events, they have great satellite tourneys and they give you chips towards other events (always sold mine), great deep stack tourneys (i think 3-4 a day) and good action cash games.

    My also want to look into the Aria Classic. They have a lot of events running and Aria's poker management is really good with running tourneys. They are partnering up with WPT for the main event of the Aria Classic. $565 buy in and $1 million guaranteed.

    I talked to someone at the Rio and he said that the bus runs between the Rio, Harrah's and Bally's every day between 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 a.m. The bus picks up every 30 minutes but they cannot guarantee the time because it depends on traffic. I'm not sure about Harrah's, but he said the bus picks up and drops off at the Flamingo side exit of Bally's.
