Barbary Coast no longer...does this mean..

Now...don't get irritated, this is a boring question and before I ask it, know that I have looked under available sources of transportation. The CAT site, trying to route everything was a mess. We are staying at Ballys next week. I was spoiled by hopping on the bus across the street at Barbary Coast to take me to the Orleans. If it is no longer in existence, besides paying for a taxi, tell me some ways to go to the off strip casinos such as the Orleans or Sunset Station from the strip.

What's so great at Orleans that it's worth taking two shuttles?

I was under the impression that the Coast shuttle still stops at Bill's as part of the sale agreement.

Yes - the Coast shuttle still operates and will pick up at the old Barbary Coast. I called Orleans to verify.

Sam's Town also has a free shuttle that picks up at Harrah's and a couple other locations. Once you're at Sams you can also get a shuttle to Downtown.

The video poker is better at the Gold Coast. They have better payout tables. The shuttle is still running. If, in the future, the shuttle stops going to Bill's- I am sure the Orleans will make other arrangments so its guest can get to the strip. Their business depends on it-and they know it. A cab ride shouldn't cost that much from Bill's or a nearby hotel.

Agree with VP, no good paytables for VP at Orleans anymore. Unless they get the hint and bring them back.

On another forum someone called the Orleans and the shuttle to BC (Bills) was still running. Disclaimer=Now this was just some info I read and I don't guarantee it!
