Getting Around Las Vegas with Big Bus Las Vegas

The Big Bus Las Vegas Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour is one of the best ways to get around and see all the top sites in Las Vegas. Big Bus provides a means of transportation to and from various points of interest along the Strip, Downtown, and beyond and features entertaining and educational information about the sites along the way. We put together a list of all the stops along the three bus routes and included several points of interest to help you plan your itinerary and make the most of your time in Las Vegas. Big Bus Las Vegas runs along two routes included in the Go Las Vegas Card that cover all points of interest along the Strip and Downtown. (Please note: Big Bus Las Vegas operates a third line, the Las Vegas Night tour (Green), but it is not included in the Go Las Vegas Card.) Each stop is listed below with suggested points of interest for your itinerary. Download the bus route map here, pull it up on your phone, or print it at home to follow along as you go.
