How hard would it be to do this? Are the routes clear and easy to follow. What I am asking is do I need to rent a car? Keep in mind I love adventure and will be traveling during the day. I have a car at the home but need to get to the home 1st.

You are mostly correct. This is not a bus town.

To see the problem go to...

http://www.rtcsouthernnevada.com/transit/sysmap/SystemMap1-09_web.pdf (broken link)

Note that it likely requires three routes to get to Summerlin...A couple of hours anyway.

Further note that much of Summerlin is not bus accessible unless you can hoof it a mile or two.

it just looks like the 109 to the 106 is all I would need. And not afraid to walk a bit. Thanks for the info. And you are right the bus is not a great option. what does the dtc and the sstt stand for on the map?

You don't want to do that. Trust me. The time and aggravation is not worth the few dollars you will save. Take a taxi or a shuttle van directly from the airport to your destination.

I will just have a friend meet me. I just wanted an adventure. I always ride local transportation just to get a feel for it. Even did that in Mexico. But I will take your word.

I also do it regularly in Mexico where it is much easier than in Las Vegas.

If you want adventure, try hitchhiking up 15 and 95- that's sure to provide some adventure, especially in July or August.

SSTT=South Strip Transfer Terminal, which is at Gillespie and Hidden Wells

DTC=Downtown Transportation Center, at Casino Center and Stewart(?)

both are the hubs for buses

i recommend that you don't take a bus from the airport to Summerlin, taking a bus here, is only convenient if you live along a line and you are only staying on that line and not for too many miles either...i rode the bus systems cross town before for 2 years, instead of taking a school bus (which was so much more inefficient in its routing), but you will end up spending hours going across town...The RTC trip planner may help you out, its on their website...

Car Rental is high right now. Bus wasn't bad. It does take 45 minutes longer than driving, but you are dropped off right at the terminal door. You still have to take those rentals back to their office. Long Term Parking is 8-10 per day. If you rent a car or park long term; you will still be arriving by bus, so put 40, 50, or a hundred back in your pocket and give RTC a try.
