A free shuttle operates between Orleans,Gold Coast,Sun Coast to the Barbary Coast on the middle of the strip. You don’t have to be a guest of one of these properties but its a good way to get to the strip for free if you are staying at one of these properties. The shuttle runs often and if you are staying at the Rio or The Palms its easy to pick up the shuttle next door at the Gold Coast and take it to Barbary Coast on the strip. By doing this you save on cab fare and walking from the Rio or Palms to the strip even though its not that far you have to walk across two freeway onramp entrances which is not the safest thing to do. Also before you get on the shuttle check the sign on the front to make sure its going the right direction.
