2016 UNLV Football Transit Service

Service for the UNLV football games at Sam Boyd stadium will be provided by Route 601 and Route 602.  Route 601 provides continuous “loop" service from Tropicana Ave. east of Boulder Hwy. to Sam Boyd Stadium, approximately every 20 minutes. Route 602 provides express service from the Las Vegas Strip and the UNLV Main Campus area to Sam Boyd Stadium. Those traveling from the Las Vegas Strip can board Route 602 at the transit stop located on East Tropicana Ave. at Las Vegas Blvd. (adjacent to the Tropicana Hotel). Residential fares apply to Route 601 & 602. However if you will be traveling along the Las Vegas Strip it is recommended that you purchase a Strip & All Access pass to ensure coverage on all RTC Transit routes, including the Deuce on the Strip and The Strip and Downtown Express.

Heat Notice

Due to extreme weather temperatures and doors opening and closing, the temperature inside the vehicle is typically 20 degrees cooler than outside. Air conditioning systems used on all RTC transit vehicles are the best available in the industry and we continue to work diligently to maintain them for your comfort.

Effective December 8, 2015 at 8 a.m., the Route 121 north end layover will be permanently relocated to southbound Buffalo just north of (before) Cheyenne.  As a result, the service times at stops 3727 (southbound Buffalo just south of Gowan) & 3728 (southbound Buffalo just south of Delhi) will change.  Please use the northbound Timepoint A plus two (2) to four (4) minutes as the new estimated service times at these stops.
