LAS VEGAS – The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) announces its plans for the NFL Draft coming to the Las Vegas Strip, April 28-30.

Game Day Express transit passes are $4 roundtrip and can be purchased seven days in advance on the rideRTC, Transit, Lyft and Uber apps, or cash is accepted at pick-up locations. All riders are required to wear masks while traveling on RTC buses. 

All routes will drop off/pick up at W. Flamingo Rd., just west of Paradise (in front of Starbucks at Hughes Center). It’s an approximately half-mile walk to the entrance of the Draft Experience.

Daily route times will run prior to the opening of the Draft Experience and end approximately one hour after the Experience closes. All buses will depart approximately every 30 minutes.
