Getting Around Las Vegas | Vegas Transportation

Monorail*

*Services have been postponed until further notice. 

About 

The Las Vegas Monorail stops at seven points on the Las Vegas Strip:

Cost

A single ride is $5; a day pass is $13; and they also have two to seven-day passes with prices that range from $23-$56. If you’re a Nevada local, you can buy a single ride for $1; restrictions apply depending on how many you want to buy.

Recommendation 

Great to use if you’re at or near a hotel that the monorail stops at and want to visit another hotel with a stop or near a stop. This is also a great option for anyone attending a convention at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The monorail also offers free shuttle rides at various off-the-Strip hotels. If you’re looking to go to the Strip, be sure to see if they have a shuttle at your hotel.

What you need to know 

The monorail does not run all night. After a certain hour, you will need to take a different form of transportation.

 

Taxis

About 

Taxis are the main form of transportation used throughout Vegas. There is an abundance of them all over the city and, most likely, always a few waiting within a taxi line at a hotel during all hours of the day and night.

Cost 

Varies depending on traffic and time of year. Additionally, taxis requested at the airport have an additional fee included.

Recommendation

Taxis are great to use when you want to go from property to property, to and from the airport, or if you’re just trying to get back to your house after a night at the club. There are plenty of them throughout town so you never have to worry about there not being enough drivers at a late hour. 

What you need to know 

What you need to know: Unlike other cities, you cannot hail a taxi on the street in Las Vegas. Taxis are required to pick up a fair at a physical address, such as a hotel taxi line. Hotel have specific areas for taxi pick-up, usually near the valet or main entrance. If you have any concerns with a taxi driver, you can call the Nevada Taxicab Authority at 702-668-4005 to report any issues.

 

Public Transportation

About:
The Deuce is the name of Las Vegas’ form of public transportation that’s operated by the Regional Transportation Committee. It’s one of the best ways to get around the city when you’re looking to save your money during your trip.

 

While the bus runs throughout the town, there are two routes you can specifically take for the Strip and Downtown. The routes are The Deuce on the Strip, which stops at or around most properties on the Strip, and the SDX (Strip and Downtown Express), which stops at about half the stops as the other route. In total, the SDX bus (Direction: Strip and Downtown Express Southbound) has 21 stops departing from
