Are there any cheap shuttles? Busses maybe? I'll be staying on the strip next month and want to go downtown one night but dont really want to pay $40-50 bucks round trip by taking cabs

It's a double-decker bus.

Buy the day pass from a vending machine at a stop, by all means. But take the SDX (Strip & Downtown Express), as it make sfar fewer stops along the way.

I would take the downtown express. Fewer stops on the strip: Bellagio - Fremont is about 20 minutes depending on traffic.

It's a bus, for sure..

You could also visit outlying casinos on the same pass. For instance, if you take Freemont/Boulderhighway back from downtown you can change buses at major roads like Flamingo and Tropicana or another major road to get back to your primary casino on the Strip making a triangular route instead of straight back and forth from downtown.

All for the same price as long as it's in the 24 hours.

It's 20 minutes between buses on the major roads for possible wait times..

You can find maps and schedules for the Deuce and the SDX here.

As others have mentioned, the Deuce is the slower, local bus, and the SDX is the faster express bus with limited stops.

By the way, don't get alarmed when the SDX makes a jog off of the strip at Convention Center Drive -- it comes back to cross Las Vegas Blvd. near the Stratosphere and then heads downtown.

It makes for a very big difference. Sometimes as much as 20-40 minutes trip time. One reason is the number of stops, but another is that on the Deuce each person boarding must either pay or swipe a ticket. I took the Deuce only to get to certain stops the SDX doesn't make. Liek Tacos el Gordo, for instance :)
