A “Deuce” bus on the Las Vegas Strip .

The Deuce or Deuce on the Strip is the name of a double-decker bus line operating on RTC Transit in Las Vegas . The line serves Las Vegas Boulevard and shares the route largely with the express line SDX . Commissioning was on October 27, 2005.

The name The Deuce (English for the two ) is a play on words. On the one hand, this refers to the two floors of the buses used, on the other hand, it also refers to the expression "Deuce", which was originally used to describe a two when rolling the dice and thus refers to the ubiquitous gambling on the Strip. In addition, a one-way ticket was originally $ 2 . Although the price has increased since then and double-decker buses are also used on other lines in the city, the name has been retained.

The buses currently in use offer space for a total of 80 passengers, 27 of them on the lower and 53 on the upper floor. They have a total length of about 13 meters. The fare is currently $ 6 for a 2-hour ticket and $ 8 for a 24-hour ticket (as of October 2019).
