|A 1974 GMC fishbowl working the busy Route 6 "Strip" loading in Downtown for the Strip run. These fishbowls were the main workhorses of the Strip bus fleet up until the end of LVTS operations. This route was the "cash cow" that supported the whole system. Photo is circa late 1980s (1988?)|
|The sign is complete, it's just missing its end blank area.
A brief history:
Las Vegas Transit System took over a previous company, Las Vegas Transit Lines, in 1965. LVTS was in business between 1965 to approximately 1993-94. The Citizens Area Transit officially started service in late 1992, and for a time, there was technically 2 public transit systems in Las Vegas until LVTS faded away. After CAT took over, LVTS only competed with CAT on the busy and lucrative Route 6 "Strip" route.
