LAS VEGAS – The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC), along with local community leaders, partners and some of the city’s most beloved celebrities, will gather on Tuesday, June 25 at 3 p.m. to celebrate the launch of Trip to Strip, the RTC’s new on-demand rideshare service that offers an affordable way to get around the Las Vegas Resort Corridor for up to 11 passengers.
This month, Trip to Strip officially debuted and has already expanded its service area, which now covers the Las Vegas Strip from downtown to the M Resort. Pickups and drop-offs are at the nearest RTC fixed route or paratransit stop, most of which are located near property entrances, and the zero level of McCarran International Airport.
Never implementing surge pricing, Trip to Strip is an affordable option, especially for tourists traveling in groups for conventions, meetings, weddings, or birthday and bacherlor(ette) parties. Trip to Strip provides a luxury ride via a limousine-style interior without premium prices. Able to carry up to 11 passengers, the RTC’s new pilot program is perfect for small groups wanting to travel affordably together.
