As mentioned in this weeks IVLV email newsletter,  50 new double decker buses are cruising up and down the Las Vegas Strip daily with 73 stops. Cost to ride is $2 one way and $5 for a 24-hour pass. This week’s Reader Poll asks, would you ride these new buses rather than taking a taxi or renting a car? Why or Why Not?
Reader Poll Replies:

I would ride it at least once and see what it is like.  Cost seems cheap enough, count me in.  Dave W. 

* Two weeks ago I returned from my annual trip to Vegas and yes I did ride the new buses and they are great.  Very clean, pleasant people and it was all casino minded people because the buses only go up and down Las Vegas Blvd.  I was highly impressed.  Jean Sawyers CA

*  Yes, I have rode the new double deckers and I had a great time, and it only cost me $10 for two days, that is a real bargain.  Long live the Duece.  H T.  Chicago IL

* Yes, I have ridden the Deuce. It was clean, quick and easy access. We had the 24 hour pass. Very good bargain for traveling up and down the strip. You are in full control of where you go and when you get off the bus.  Linda Osman

*  As a visitor to your city several times a year, I, for one, love the new double decker buses! The ride is pleasant, the view-pure Vegas, and unlike taking a taxi or driving a rental, I can focus solely on the ride, the riders, the scenery or my travel companions.
Taking a taxi or renting a car involves a lot more concentration, I am not a big city driver and am rarely in a hurry to get anywhere once I've landed at the airport.  Tawni Schwochow  Fremont, Ohio

*  Of course I would ride the new buses. My husband and I use the bus for transportation whenever we are in Las Vegas. It is the most economical way to get to the strip from downtown and visa versa, and besides for $5.00 apiece we can get off and on the bus as many times as we want in a 24 hr. period. At certain times of the day the bus is very crowded (late afternoon, early evening) as people are heading home from work or going downtown for the light show. We have not encountered any problems on our many rides, and will continue to use the bus and are looking forward to checking out the new busses.  Florence

*  I would definitely ride the double-decker buses...convenience and cost being the two main reasons.  Larry Andreessen

* One of the many nice things about life on The Strip is that you have many transportation options. The Bus is most convenient if you are moving along the strip, and your next stop is only "a couple blocks" away. Cabs and shuttles work best if you are moving between hotels via Koval or Industrial, but they are typically not convenient to the strip. I have played Town Car Roulette, finding a driver who needed to relocate to a different casino in my direction of travel, who would take several of us for just a few dollars (don't be obvious, the cab drivers get upset). A double-decker bus is a novelty, like the Monorail. As long as it stops on a reasonable interval, the bus stops are clean, and you can buy tickets everywhere, I would use it. If you're staying at the Strat and want to go to Mandalay, the $2 is dirt cheap. I only rent if I have a group and a need to get away from the casinos.  Don in Portland

*   I would for sure take the bus over the taxi cab any day of the week. The cabs are expensive and the only thing there good for as far as I'm concerned is taking you to the strip joints. the busses are nice and at a good cost to travel the strip. and that is the key word. the strip. To go any place out of the way and to just take a ride somewhere to kill a few hours a rental car is the way to go and remember when you park at valet its only like a two dollar tip to park.( the cost of the bus) I recently was in Vegas and took a ride on the new double decker. It was fine. Go upstairs for a nice view and enjoy.  Ralph

* I have been to Las Vegas 3 times so far and going again in July 2006. I would definitely ride the new double-deckers. Every other year we rode the old buses. It is the cheapest way to get from point A to point B. Plus, on the buses, you meet interesting people that you wouldn't otherwise meet if you rented a car or took an overpriced taxi ride!  Jen Vincent
