Bolt Bus Launches New Route Between Los Angeles and Las Vegas
So Cal residents who are tired of fighting traffic, speeding tickets, or remaining sober in or on the way to Sin City will be excited to hear that BoltBus has launched a new route from Los Angeles to Las Vegas.
The discount bus service is advertising $1 fares to celebrate, but in searching the schedule for the next few weeks, the cheapest we could find was $5 one-way. Eight bucks was the most common. The $1 fares are apparently no more, but eight bucks ain't bad! According to General Manager Dave Hall, the trip will take five hours and one-way fares will be approximately $20 or $30 in the spring.
Despite the low cost, the buses actually sound quite comfortable, featuring leather seats, free WiFi, and a power source. There will be one daily round-trip on weekdays and three round-trips on Saturdays and Sundays. The route will go between Union Station in LA and the Greyhound terminal on Main Street in Vegas. This will be the second bus company to offer a route between LA and Vegas -- if you remember, Megabus launched its route about this time last year.
