The Deuce Double Decker Bus - Las Vegas Strip website provides comprehensive information about the schedules, fares, route maps and photos of the buses.
The Deuce is a city bus that travels from the Downtown - Fremont Street area to the south end on the Strip and back again.
There are stops along the way near most of the major casinos, and at the Town Square Mall and Las Vegas Discount Mall.
You can also use your Deuce pass on other city buses.
The good things about it:

Where to catch it:
If you are a frequent visitor to Las Vegas and age 65 or older whose visits are at least 4 days at a time, go to the Downtown Transit Center and apply for a Senior Transit ID Card. You will receive it in your mail at home within 10 days. Then, the next time you are in Vegas, go to the Transit Center and pay $25 (as of March 2009) for a Senior monthly pass (if you use the Deuce or other buses more than 3-4 days, it will save you money). Or, in lieu of the 30-day pass, show the Senior ID on the Deuce and other buses and pay half fare.
Unlike most major cities, the 30-day bus pass in Las Vegas is for 30 consecutive days from the date and time of first use rather than for a fixed monthly time period (January, February, etc. for example).
