The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada and the Las Vegas Raiders today announce the launch of Game Day Express service that will offer direct, express transit routes from five convenient locations throughout the Las Vegas Valley to Allegiant Stadium for Las Vegas Raiders home games.
The service commences with the Raiders first preseason game on Saturday, Aug. 14 and continues throughout the season for all ten Raiders home games. The cost of the Game Day service is $2 per person each way ($4 roundtrip). Payment may be made in cash with exact change on the bus, or passes may be purchased in advance on the rideRTC app.
Game Day Express service will vary according to game time. The first departures are planned for 30 minutes prior to the time gates open (approximately three hours before kick-off) with service running approximately 30 minutes from each site. After games, buses for each route will depart approximately 20 to 30 minutes after game end.
For the Aug. 14 preseason game which starts at 6 p.m. and for which gates open at 3 p.m., Game Day Express service begins at 2:30 p.m. and runs every 30 minutes with the last bus departing for Allegiant Stadium at 5 p.m. For other home games that begin at 1:05 p.m. or 1:25 p.m., Game Day Express service will begin at 9:30 a.m. and run every 30 minutes with the last bus departing at noon.
The five locations from which Game Day Express service will operate include:
- Route 605 – Summerlin Game Day Express: Red Rock Casino Resort Spa, 11011 W. Charleston Blvd., Las Vegas, NV 89135
- Route 606 – Green Valley Game Day Express: Green Valley Ranch Resort Casino & Spa, 2300 Paseo Verde Parkway, Henderson 89052

“We’re thrilled to partner with the Raiders to provide Southern Nevada residents with a convenient, affordable and easy way to get to and from Allegiant Stadium,” said RTC Chairwoman and Henderson Mayor Debra March. “Based on the success and popularity of our similar service to T-Mobile Arena for Vegas Golden Knights games, many in the community have shared the same strong interest and enthusiasm for express service to Allegiant Stadium,” she said.
According to MJ Maynard, RTC Chief Executive Officer, “we are proud to say we heard many in our community, and our Raiders Game Day Express service is the result. This service will help further alleviate congestion in an already busy corridor benefiting both residents and tourists. For those who prefer to leave the driving to someone else and eliminate the need to park, Game Day Express is an ideal option, providing reliable and affordable service. With five suburban locations, there’s a convenient place to catch the bus from just about anywhere in the valley. We have been working closely with the Raiders to make this program a reality and are pleased it will be operational for the Raiders’ first season with fans at Allegiant Stadium.”
Clark County Commissioner Michael Naft echoed the RTC’s sentiments about the new Game Day Express Service. “The economic uplift from an NFL game is important to our County and our community as we recover from the pandemic,” said Naft. “Given the scope and scale of Las Vegas Raiders games, we believe this express transit service will be an important part of efforts to alleviate traffic congestion, while providing a great transportation alternative for local fans.”
For tourists traveling from downtown Las Vegas or the Strip, the RTC’s popular double-decker Deuce service provides convenient, 24/7 service get fans to the Allegiant Stadium. Fans can take the Deuce to the transit stop near Mandalay Bay, then walk across Hacienda Bridge which is closed to automobile traffic before and after the game.
