Vegas Transport – Finding a way to
get where you’re going is very easy in Las Vegas.
There are a wide variety of transportation options.
Most transport services are reasonably priced. Public
transportation is readily available, and easy to use.
Some of it is even free. Most major hotels in Las
Vegas offer a complementary shuttle from the airport.
Check with your hotel to find out if this service
is offered. This is the most efficient and inexpensive
way to start your Las Vegas adventure.
There are plenty of Taxi Companies in Las
Vegas. Check around beforehand to make sure
you choose a reputable company. Also, make sure you
understand the way the drivers figure out the fare.
Most of the good companies have a fare meter highly
visible so that you can see how much you owe per mile,
and how many miles you’ve travelled. It’s
always a good idea to know approximately how far your
destination is so that you don’t fall victim
to drivers who run up the odometer (and the fare)
by taking the long way around.
Limousines are a fun way to get
around town, if you have a few extra bucks to spend.
These are usually rented for the evening, rather than
by mileage. They are also available for party transport
(weddings, bachelor/bachelorette, etc.).
Vegas has a very extensive Bus System.
It also runs to nearby cities of Laughlin and Mesquite.
Strip service is every 10 minutes. Rides are very
reasonably priced. It is a nice perk that all buses
are air-conditioned. However, a bus ride can be cramped,
and you won’t enjoy the privacy a cab ride affords.
The Strip features trolleys that run every 20 minutes
and makes stops from the Stratosphere to the Luxor
9:20 a.m. to 2 a.m. Trolley rides are $1.75. They
are unconditioned, however.
The Las Vegas Monorail a modern
transit system that runs along the east side of the
Las Vegas Strip. There are seven stations over four
miles, linking eight resorts and the Las Vegas Convention
Center. The monorail provides a quick and comfortable
ride through the heart of the resort corridor. The
Las Vegas Monorail operates 7 days a week from 8:00
a.m. to midnight.
