Downtown & Veterans Medical Center Express (DVX)

The Downtown & Veterans Medical Center Express (DVX) route provides an alternative to the regular door-to-door service when going to the Veterans Medical Center. This service connects with other VMTN shuttles at the Bonneville Transit Center (BTC) in downtown Las Vegas.
Please note that the RTC website uses Google Transit to plan transit trips. Google Transit may indicate that there is additional walking time after arriving at the Veterans Medical Center; however this is not accurate. The (DVX) arrives on site at the Veterans Medical Center northeast entrance.
