    Wow, that sucks. I hate stopping every block all the way from Paris to downtown. Takes forever.

    Not sure if this is better for my bankroll or not. On the one hand, I get to sober up/spend time not feeding cash to the machines. On the other hand, it might make me less likely to even travel downtown.
     
    First (and last) trip of the year :(

    I am missing the part where CX would no longer stop at Fremont. Where are you seeing this?

    Well that just sucks. We didn't use it from the airport, but rather from downtown to Suncoast. 4 stops and we were there. Plus senior rate of a buck each way.

    It will give you a chance to spend more time on the bus enjoying the company of interesting and baffling local citizens.

    I was just reading the summary that the CX would go from the airport to the BTC, I didn't look at where it went from there. If it runs thru Fremont, that's a win at least.

    I read it that the CX will be taking the previous WAX route between McCarran and Downtown. The CX should still be stopping at 4th & Carson, close to the FSE.

    So are you saying one will be able to ride the CX (from Terminal 1) to FSE direct?

    Sure looks like it. CX also leaves for the airport from outside Binions, just like the WAX did.

    Google maps shows a CX bus stop at 4th&Carson...the question is, for the experienced riders, going from LAS to downtown on the CX line, when the bus gets to the BTC, do you have to "transfer" to a different CX bus at the transit center in order to continue northbound to 4th&Carson?

    I am coming to LAS in Feb. I have always rode the WAX bus from level 0 to downtown. I called RTC customer service today, 9/18/2020. The lady stated that I had to take the 109 or 108 bus to Bonneville transit center and walk 10 mins to Fremont or get on the Duce if I did not walk. Does anyone have any more info on best way to get to downtown from McCarren? Thank you. GOLFCADDY1

    The RTC site shows the CX as an airport stop traveling to 4th & Carson as previously stated. Looking at the scheduled travel time it looks like it will take about 45 minutes from terminal 1 to 4th & Carson Which is about 15 minutes slower than the WAX times. The new CX schedule starts October 4th.

    Just a FYI for people. Be wary of asking for advice in the bus loading area at McCarran. We used to take the WAX sometimes out to Suncoast from the airport and on more than one occasion, I overheard locals giving false/incorrect information to tourists on which bus to take. Intentional, or not knowing any better, but know ahead of time which bus you need. I later read on one of the forums that this is a game locals like to play on tourists

    Just beware. If you are not sure, the driver is usually your best source of information as you get on the bus.

    Used to take the Suncoast shuttle to/from the airport and the WAX between Suncoast, downtown, and the airport. Now both are gone. Hopefully, the WAX will be resurrected by the time I go back to Vegas, which will be when Covid is history.
