Route 602 provides express service from the Las Vegas Strip and the UNLV Main Campus area, with a stop at the new UNLV Transit Center on University Road across from Greenspun Hall, to Sam Boyd Stadium. Departures are scheduled approximately every 20 minutes. Those traveling from the Las Vegas Strip can take Route 602 at the transit stop located at East Tropicana Avenue and Las Vegas Boulevard (adjacent to the Tropicana Hotel).

Route 601 provides continuous “loop” service, approximately every 20 minutes, from Tropicana Avenue east of Boulder Highway to Sam Boyd Stadium. For specific route and scheduling information, please visit rtcsnv.com.

Residential fares apply to Route 601/602. However if you will be traveling along the Las Vegas Strip it is recommended that you purchase a Strip & All Access pass to ensure coverage on all RTC Transit routes, including Deuce on the Strip and Strip & Downtown Express.
