    Is there such a route?

    We are soooo spoiled with using the WAX to get downtown!!

    You have to get to Tropicana from LAS. Google Maps shows Bus #108 for that, then transfer to Bus #201 at Paradise and Tropicana. Roughly 40 minutes, depending on connections.

    Above advice works, as well as using route 109 to get to Tropicana; or WAX to the NYNY stop and transfer to route 201.

    Not sure what you have for luggage, but be aware the 201 and 202 are often quite full and getting situated with luggage is a challenge. The WAX and 108 always seem to have enough room for my bag to not be in anyone's way.

    If the timing works out, take the WAX to NYNY and then transfer to the 201 (same stop). It's faster than the 108 or 109N, you don't have to cross streets to another stop, and the trip to Orleans is shorter. Buy a 2-hour pass when boarding at the airport. I've done it many times.

    Orleans is close enough to the airport that I would think Uber or Lyft would be the way to go.$10 to $12 & no bus hassles.
    That said, I agree that the WAX is the way to go airport-downtown-airport.

    Well, the OP mentioned "bus," but I agree that Uber might be a darn good option. That's especially true for two or more passengers and if each would have to pay $3 for a 2-hour bus pass instead of the half price senior fare. I used Uber for the first time a month ago and will certainly be using them again this trip.
