VEGAS (September 27, 2017) - Vegas Golden Knights President Kerry Bubolz and The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) announced today, September 27, the details of the "Golden Knights Express," which will provide Golden Knights fans throughout the valley with a convenient, safe and affordable option to travel to home games at T-Mobile Arena.
"We are committed to ensuring an enjoyable game day experience for our fans," said Vegas Golden Knights President Kerry Bubolz. "The routes offered through the Golden Knights Express will provide our fans with additional options for arriving to and departing our home games in a convenient manner. We are extremely pleased to partner with the RTC on this endeavor and look forward to working with them on providing outstanding service to our fans throughout the valley."
The RTC will operate four Golden Knights Express routes during the 2017 - 2018 Vegas Golden Knights season that will provide non-stop service to T-Mobile Arena. In addition to the regular season, these routes will operate during the Thursday, Sept. 28 and Sunday, Oct. 1 preseason games. The RTC's normal residential fares will apply to these routes. All routes will pick up and drop off at a temporary stop where Frank Sinatra Dr. connects with an access road just north of the Excalibur parking garage. From there, it is approximately a 10-minute walk to the arena by taking a sidewalk that runs north along Frank Sinatra Dr.
Each route will make three trips to T-Mobile Arena at varying times before the game begins. After the game, each route will depart the arena approximately 20 minutes, 30 minutes and 45 minutes after the game ends. If the last trip of any route reaches full capacity, an additional bus will be provided within 20 to 30 minutes.
Free parking is available at all four locations.
