Celebrate National Beach Day Vegas Style!

On National Beach Day – Aug. 30 – don’t let a little thing like being in the desert stop you from spending the day burying your toes in white sand or catching the perfect wave.  Grab your friends and jump on the newest rideshare service from the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC), Trip to Strip , to beach hop – Vegas style!   

  1. 2,700 tons of real sand create the definitive beach vibe at Mandalay Bay Beach where you can sip a beach-worthy cocktail and splash around in the giant wave pool or float aimlessly down the Lazy River. If that doesn’t float your inner tube, the beachside bungalows are the ultimate in luxury and relaxation.
  2. Who needs the ocean when you can hang ten at Planet Hollywood’s FlowRider Wave Rider? Go from bodyboarding to standing up on flowboards and doing kickflips in no time. And if wave riding isn’t your thing, lounge on two pool decks or no fewer than 31 cabanas and daybeds.
  3. Forget the sand and surf – the ultimate pool party scene is at the  Encore Beach Club. The party never stops with three-tiered pools, the world’s best DJs, live entertainment, luxurious cabanas and bungalows, plush daybeds, infinity dipping pools and more.  
  4. For added thrill, swim near real sharks at The Tank at Golden Nugget. Jump on the 30-foot-high waterslide for a ride that plunges through the shark tank for an even closer view. Then rejuvenate poolside or by the waterfalls.

Best of all? You and your 10 friends can get to all of these places using Trip to Strip - Available 24/7 with a limousine-like interior. You never pay surge pricing, and new users can get 15 percent off their first ride with the promo code, “FIRSTRIDE.”  Get the free app in the Apple and Google Play stores.

RTC is moving Southern Nevada forward with the official launch of the rideshare service, Trip to Strip!

It’s innovative, it’s affordable, and it fits up to 11 passengers! The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) celebrated the official launch of its on-demand rideshare service, Trip to Strip, in true Vegas fashion.

“Services like Trip to Strip help make travel easier for the tens of millions of visitors we welcome annually, as well as locals enjoying a night out or staycation,” said Las Vegas Mayor and RTC Board Member Carolyn Goodman. “More importantly, it positions Las Vegas on the cutting edge of innovative, viable and affordable transportation alternatives.”

Local leaders and celebrities joined a crowd of attendees at the Las Vegas Convention Center for the festivities on Tuesday, June 25. Among the crowd were Terry Fator, Chippendales, former Las Vegas Mayor and brand ambassador Oscar Goodman and his Vegas showgirls, and “O” by Cirque du Soleil performers. Speakers included Mayor Carolyn Goodman, RTC Chairman Larry Brown, Las Vegas Convention Center CEO Steve Hill and Keolis Western Regions VP of Operations Francis Julien.

“The sustainability of the RTC is contingent upon being progressive, being out in front of technology change and taking chances,” said Chairman Brown. “There’s risk involved but unless we’re willing to take that chance, then we will find ourselves so far behind the eight ball on mobility that we won’t recover.”

The rideshare service has become increasingly popular since its soft launch in May, expanding services from the Strip to downtown Las Vegas, McCarran International Airport and the M Resort. It’s gained national attention for being the largest public agency-led microtransit program of its kind in the country.

“This is one that I’m particularly proud of. I do think it’s the future of public transit,” said Tina Quigley, RTC CEO. “We owe it to our community, to our constituents, to our resorts, to our visitors, to at least play around with piloting and demonstrating all kinds of different technologies in transportation.”

Pickups and drop-offs are at the nearest RTC fixed route or paratransit stops, most of which are located near property entrances, and the zero level of McCarran International Airport. The shuttles are spacious with a limousine-style interior. The Trip to Strip app is easy to use, and there’s no surge pricing, ever.
