My question is regarding the shuttle that the Palace Station provides to and from the strip. Are only guests allowed to use that shuttle? The reason that I ask is that I'm a low roller and was wanting to play some cheap tiles and I heard that Palace station is the place. I was figuring I might play there a little bit and take the shuttle back to the strip in order to save cab fare.

The few shuttles I jumped on, driver never asked. I believe they are all free and okay with jumping a ride.

I appreciate you responding. It makes sense that they wouldn't be very strict about it. I can't imagine there is a huge rush of people trying to get to the Palace Station from the strip.

During my first 2.5 year of living in Vegas from 2009 until 2012, I lived a block off the strip and didn't own a car. I would often use the various off strip location shuttles to get to some of the properties, like M resort, Silverton, Red Rock, Palace stations, Sam's town, Orleans/gold coast, Rio, to name a few. Most of these had a policy of hotel guest first, then open to the public. This meant that 95% of the time, when not crowded they didn't ask, but a few times when crowded they would board hotel guests first and then general public. There were a few times that I was unable to return from M resort and had to wait for next shuttle.

Also, many strip or downtown visitors don't realize that if they purchase a pass for the Deuce, that pass is good on all the residential routes as well. There is fairly easy and short RTC (public transit) from strip to Palace Station, Orleans, Palms/Gold Coast/Rio, Silver7, and one bus, but longer trip access to Red Rock, Sam's Town. If you are willing to change buses, you can get to almost every casino in the valley. (I believe rampart and M resort are the two not accessed by public transportation).

Why what? Why does he like the coffee shop? Or why can't he play Blackjack at Station properties?

He likes the coffee shop, because Palace Station has absolutely the worst buffet in Vegas. Lol.

He can't play blackjack, because he farts at the table too much and was asked not to. lol.

Just kidding (about the farting). Station Casino's is mildly sweaty as a chain, and Palace among the sweatiest as an individual property. Palace has some decent low limit BJ games, but wouldn't risk playing there too often and getting 86ed and flyered chain-wide where you could lose some even better games at other more tolerant properties.

Hey Kewlj,

I remember in a prior post how you knew so much about the Rio shuttle. Now I know why. And you also mentioned on another thread that some of the Station properties are sweaty than others. And now I know which is worst. And you mentioned how Station properties share info when I mentioned I got backed off at one after being backed off at another. Well, you know a lot about Vegas (yes, I know, you live there). Passed by Binion's old house on Bonanza yet? I did last week and it's still there.
