Parade attendees can hop on the RTC Game Day Express from six convenient locations

LAS VEGAS – The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) urges those planning to drive to the Las Vegas Strip or to attend the 2023 Stanley Cup Parade for the Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday, June 16 at 7 p.m., to plan ahead for traffic delays and transit detours.

Attendees can easily get to the parade via Game Day Express buses from six convenient locations throughout the valley. Game Day Express transit passes can be purchased in cash for $4 roundtrip at the pick-up locations. Attendees can also purchase 24-hour passes for $5 on rideRTC, Transit, Lyft and Uber apps.

Due to the anticipated high demand, service will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Departure times are 4, 4:30 and 5 p.m. Following the parade, buses will depart approximately every 30 minutes from 8:30 to 10:30 p.m. on Excalibur Way.
