Golden Knights Express Transit Service Welcomes Upcoming NHL Season
The popular “Golden Knights Express” will again provide nonstop service to and from the hockey games at T-Mobile Arena, starting with the first preseason game on Sunday, Sept. 15 against the Arizona Coyotes.
The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) is welcoming the 2019-2020 NHL season with the return of one of the most convenient and cost-efficient ride options to Vegas Golden Knights home games.
Four Golden Knights Express routes will connect fans from every part of the valley to the arena. The transit service remains among the best bargains for game day transportation with fares as low as just $2 each way and free parking at five park & ride locations across the valley.
This year, Sierra Gold at 6515 S. Jones Blvd. will be the new starting point for the service in the southwest valley. Just like the other park & ride locations, customers will be able to park their vehicles, board a Golden Knights Express bus and enjoy a ride with their fellow fans to the game.
All routes will pick up and drop off fans at a stop near the T-Mobile Arena where Frank Sinatra Drive connects with an access road just north of the Excalibur Hotel & Casino parking garage. The arena is a short 10-minute walk from there.
