    When visiting Las Vegas my wife and I found the Bus service traveling up and down the Strip to be comfortable and easy to use.

    Currently no space to put a nice Hend. city hall stop on Water St. that would not be too close to the intersection.

    the computer screens at stops all got removed on Boulder highway - due to vandalism or reliability?

    Riding the bus in Vegas has the stigma that you are poor. How successful/popular are the new Summerlin routes?

    Still too many stinky seats from previous patrons. Yeah I know the fabric is antimicrobial...

    Bus stops need to be more conveniently placed if you want more ridership.
