Some endpoints of the Sauce Labs REST API have rate limits to prevent over-utilization. For authenticated requests, these limits are imposed for individual user accounts. For non-authenticated requests, the rate limit is imposed for the IP address. Once allowed request rate  for user or IP address is exhausted a 429 error is returned. 

Authenticated Requests
REST API EndpointRate Limit
/rest/v1/*/activity3 requests per second or 3,500 requests per hour
All other endpoints10 requests per second or 3,500 requests per hour

Not authenticated requests are allowed up to 2 requests per minute rate. 

You can find out more about rate limits in the blog post, "Announcing New Rest API Usage Limits."
