Travelers have but few options when trekking from Phoenix to Las Vegas. There's the legroom-less route of airlines, where travel time gets trumped up by the hassles of outstretched security lines and labyrinthine terminals. Then there's the awkwardness of strapping roadrunners to your feet. Offering a better alternative in terms of comfort, convenience, timing, and luxury, the Blue Dot Xpress eases traveling woes by bridging the cities with regularly-scheduled round-trip service. Vacationers and commuters trade in cramped coach sections for the spacious interiors of a sleek Mercedes Benz shuttle with plenty of luggage room. All the while, seasoned chauffeurs escort them safely from handy locations such as Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport to the Bellagio or Gold Coast Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, all in roughly 4.5 hours. The only carrier of its kind to be granted interstate commerce operating authority by the United States Department of Transportation (US DOT) and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), the privately owned Blue Dot Xpress is like a first class flight without the turbulence, the measly soda portions, or that guy trying to stuff his bagged walrus into the overhead bin.
