Complimentary Shuttle Bus Service Available for the
Wrangler National Finals Rodeo
New routes added for 2012; 22 hotel properties now participate in
LAS VEGAS – November 14, 2012 – Rodeo fans looking for transportation to and from the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo (NFR) will have the option to utilize complimentary shuttle bus service with routes from the Las Vegas Convention Center and NFR official host hotels on the Las Vegas Strip and Downtown to the Thomas & Mack Center.
From Thursday, Dec. 6 through Saturday, Dec. 15, shuttle buses will pick-up in front of the NFR Cowboy Christmas Gift Show/FanFest located at the Las Vegas Convention Center. This one-way route will serve as the Rodeo Express Shuttle and will run from the Las Vegas Convention Center North Hall directly to the Thomas & Mack Center.
Also beginning on Dec. 6, the NFR Shuttle will begin complimentary routes to and from the NFR sponsor hotels. There are now fourteen routes, covering 22 hotel properties.
“The NFR Shuttle bus has become an integral part of our transportation plan,” said Pat Christenson, president of Las Vegas Events. “In addition to the routes that service our hotel partners, there is a one-way shuttle that allows fans to move efficiently from Cowboy Christmas and FanFest to the Thomas & Mack Center. With increased traffic and parking congestion at the Thomas & Mack Center, we encourage fans to consider this mode of transportation.”
In 2012, all Wrangler NFR performances begin at 6:45 p.m. (PT). For those dates, the NFR Shuttle buses will begin pick-ups at 5 p.m. (PT) and include return service until 10:30 p.m. (PT). There is no shuttle bus service during the actual rodeo performance.
Rodeo fans are urged to utilize the NFR Shuttle buses for round-trip transportation. In addition, fans are asked to allow approximately 15 minutes for traffic conditions from each hotel pick-up point. The NFR Shuttle routes and pick-up points are as follows:
