Founded by Reno locals, a new direct bus line from Reno to Las Vegas and Phoenix launched this week. Advance purchase fares to Las Vegas are as low as $39, and $59 to Phoenix.

Inland Streamliner said that it wants to fill the void left in Nevada after Silverado Stages shut down in late 2018. Silverado operated a route from Reno to Las Vegas on US Highway 95 via Tonopah. Its demise left no regular service between Nevada’s largest cities.

Founded by scheduler John Wang and Air Force veteran Bob Brown, Inland Streamliner founders said they are cutting unpopular stops and extending the route to Phoenix. They’re also increasing legroom to make travel more comfortable, hoping to attract seniors and families.

“We’re thrilled to be the only direct service from Reno to Phoenix via Las Vegas,” Wang said. “With the quickest schedules and most generous legroom in Nevada, passengers will find comfort at every seat. Also, only Streamliner offers door-to-door Service to Phoenix for a small fee.”

Streamliners will travel on a regular schedule, stopping at:

  • Reno, NV
  • Tonopah, NV
  • Las Vegas, NV
  • Boulder City, NV
  • Wickenburg, AZ
  • Surprise, AZ
  • Phoenix, AZ
  • Mesa, AZ

Passengers for points south may also board at flag stops in Fernley and Fallon.

Tickets are available online: www.streamlinerlines.com.

Streamliner recommends booking as far in advance as possible.

  1. Well I think if they are truly wanting to fill the void between Reno and Las Vegas then they would allow a person to buy a ticket to a rural town in between. They stop at Tonopah but you cannot buy a ticket to Tonopah or from Tonopah. So I’m not quite getting this filling the void thing. The problem Nevadans face is that we don’t have a bus that will stop at all those towns in between. So I do not see this as filling any voids… Good luck with this service… Doubt it will stay busy…

  2. It seems reasonable to me to book in advance as this is a start up operation.it take a huge investment to operate a intercity private transportation service. I’ve looked at the pictures on their website, bus seems clean to me. I’d ride it.

  3. Better look at this “business” pretty carefully. For one thing their FAQ page says they will fine you $100,000 if you smoke at a bus stop (I wish I was kidding here). For another they claim that they will sue you if you take a photo of their (presumably dirty) bus and post it. Lastly they are not taking reservations until six weeks from now, July 5th and are encouraging you to purchase way ahead of time – this smells like a scam to me. Their business practices are infantile and a lawsuit waiting to happen.
