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.
We'll be the first to admit that driving into Vegas from the west, while certainly beautiful and anticipatory, has its drawbacks, most of which occur on the tail end of the trip when you're battling traffic and struggling to keep your eyes open. Ever gotten a ticket on I-15? We have.
High-priced airline fares are the reason so many people drive from Los Angeles and the surrounding So Cal areas and, for a long time, there were no other option for budget travelers. Enter Megabus who welcomed the first passengers on-board its new route from Los Angeles to Las Vegas last week, kicking off what will be daily low-cost service from the City of Angels to the City of Sin. Pricing is approximately $25 or less one way which is amazing considering a cab ride from one end of The Strip to the other costs about $15 and a taxi from the airport is an average of $16 depending on the hotel.
