XpressWest 可以使乘客绕开交通拥堵的情况，以每小时最高达 150 英里的速度中间不停车地直接往返于拉斯维加斯，耗时约 80 分钟，相比而言，在公路上驾车平均费时约 4 小时。 如果在高峰时段驾车在 I-15 号州际公路上行驶，则要多花费几个小时，如遇交通事故或其他原因导致延误，则需花费更长的时间。 XpressWest 将会缓解 I-15 号州际公路上的交通拥堵，为乘客提供比驾车更加美好、洁净、安全和快捷的旅行选择，让乘客可以享受到无与伦比的交通运输体验。
因为游客趋势和人口统计资料清楚地表明“拉斯维加斯体验”开始的不够早，XpressWest 将不仅仅是一种旅行模式。 它将通过创新概念来拓展拉斯维加斯体验，例如可在列车行进中提供酒店入住服务、晚餐和表演预定，以及其他多种娱乐选择。
