Bus Related Accidents in Las Vegas

From the Double Decker buses touring the Las Vegas Strip to the network of buses running from Boulder City to Aliante, the RTC is the go-to public transit for all of the Las Vegas Valley.
Other forms of public transportation in Las Vegas are the monorail and other tram services that transport from casinos to shopping malls, hotel and the airport.

Chartered Buses and Las Vegas Tourism
Since Las Vegas is a major hub for tourism for the west coast and Nevada, chartered buses are a common occurrence on the Las Vegas streets. These buses do not have to meet the same strict regulations that the RTC has to uphold and therefore they are in a position of increased risk for accidents. With tours from the heart of the city of Las Vegas to the Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon, and Zion, tourists are able to see more of the beauty of the southwest. These chartered trips do not come without their risks. Since these buses do not have to meet the same regulations, crashes can result in serious injuries and even death for some victims.
