Getting Around in Las Vegas

Edit This
i
McCarran International Airport ( www.mccarran.com) is located at the southern end of the Strip about 5 miles (8km) south of downtown. Several companies run shuttles and limos between the airport and major Las Vegas hotels and Las Vegas attractions. Just a few of these companies include: Bell Trans ( www.bell-trans.com), Grayline/Coach USA (702-739-5700), and Ambassador/Ritz ( www.ambassadorlasvegas.com). Taxis are also available and city buses ( www.rtcsouthernnevada.com) run along the Strip into downtown. Taxi companies include Checker/Yellow/Star (702-873-2000), Western Cab Company (702-736-8000), and Desert Cab Company (702-386-9102), to name a few.

If you're staying on the Strip the best way to get around is the inexpensive shuttle bus that runs between the big casinos and Las Vegas hotels 24 hours a day. Taxis are also a good option. Those who want to get out of town will need their own wheels. You can rent a car at one of the many agencies in town such as Budget ( www.budgetvegas.com) or Enterprise ( www.enterprise.com). Tour buses run regularly between the city and Hoover Dam ( www.allvegastours.com).

Local transportation consists of

Foot - you can walk The Strip but it's probably not worth walking to Freemont Street (take The Deuce ...)

The Deuce - a bus service that goes up and down The Strip and beyond 7/24.  Cheap and cheefull.  And slow depending on traffic.

The Monorail - goes between the Convention Center and the MGM Grand with some stops in between.  Expensive, and doesn't really go anywhere usefull.

Taxis - can be expensive and slow depending on traffic

Limos - can hire them for the night or pick one up like a more..
