Erica Schlaikjer writes, "The new buses, expected to begin operation late next year, will run on dedicated lanes along a 15-kilometer route of Boulder Highway, which is located to the west of the famous Las Vegas 'Strip' and similarly dotted with several casinos and motels. Another line, the ACExpress W line, is also slated to launch later this year.

The Green Line begins construction just weeks after the launch of the ACE's first two BRT lines - the ACE Gold Line and the ACExpress C-Line - which have been heavily marketed to appeal to people who wouldn't ordinarily get out of their cars to ride the bus because of long-held assumptions and stigmas about mass transit."
