    McCarran Airport to the Strip

    by RavensWing Updated Jan 8, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cheaper than a Taxi

    The shuttle from the airport to the Strip is the most economic way to get to your hotel. It only costs $7 one way or $13 round trip. Or the Super Shuttle which is $8 to the strip. Either one is open 24 hours so you can catch them at anytime. You may have to stop off at a few hotels before you get to your own though.

    Airport shuttle service and walk-up limousine service available from Terminal 1 at Door 8 (outside the Southwest Airlines baggage claim area) and at Terminal 3 between Doors 1 and 2.

    Make Sure You Have Your Ticket

    I found that waiting for the bus on the Strip is just that - waiting. I needed to get from Bally's to Luxor and had 45 minutes to get there. We waited for 15 minutes and there was no bus. Then we went to buy our tickets for the bus and the machine was broken. We headed to the next bus stop, same problem, the ticket machine was broken. Not very convenient.

    Public Transit - Airport to The Strip or Downtown

    Strip & Downtown Express

    Yes, there is an alternative to taxis & shuttles. At McCarran Airport baggage claim area, take the escalators or elevators down to Ground Level Zero. Walk out the doors. Then cross one street to the centre island. Turn right & walk to the end and you will see a couple of benches and a sign displaying "RTC 108, 109". If you're looking for public transit signage at the airport, it's awful. I have a feeling they want you to use the taxis or shuttles instead of the regular bus. If you're travelling lightly like we were, there's nothing wrong with using public transit. We paid cash on the first bus, but managed to buy a 3 day pass at a ticket machine in the South Strip Transfer Terminal. For more fare information, visit RTC's website.

    The Strip - Take 109 heading south until you reach the last stop at South Strip Transfer Terminal (SSTT). Change to the Strip & Downtown Express. The 109 is an ordinary looking bus. The Strip & Downtown Exp is a futuristic looking vehicle.

    NOTE: If you ride The Strip & Downtown Express to the northern terminus, you will reach the Las Vegas Premium Outlets. It's a popular destination.

    Cheap way to get to hotel

    by albaaust Written Aug 4, 2013

    We caught the bus shuttle from the airport to our hotel and back. The booth to buy the tickets is just outside the airport and is clearly marked. Like most other bus shuttle services buses go to a particular area so you have passengers going to other hotels and you get to see what they look like as a bonus. Our driver was friendly and cheerful. Bus shuttle $14 return

    Resort Shuttles

    by Yaqui Updated May 27, 2013

    When we stay at our favorite resort the Grand Desert, which is off the strip. They provide a shuttle bus to and from the strip. It usually drops us off and picks us up at Harrah's Hotel & Casino. We take advantage of this everytime. It is a great option when you do not want to drive. I am pretty sure most resort have this. If they don't, I would complain.

    The Deuce Double Decker Bus

    Hop on - Hop off tour bus
    1 more image

    The Deuce is a city bus that travels from the Downtown - Fremont Street area to the South end on the Strip and back again. It is heated and air conditioned.

    You can use your Deuce pass on other city buses.

    24-hour pass $7;
    3-day pas $15

    Note: It is slow because it travels down congested Las Vegas Boulevard aka the Strip. And it is very hard to board mid-strip.

    Very cost-effective shuttle service running from the airport to Strip & Downtown hotels between 4a.m. and 12a.m. daily. They provide fast and good service.

    They will pick you up at your hotel and bring you back to the airport at the end of your trip (get round trip ticket).

    You can locate Shuttles: Terminal 1 exit the Baggage Claim at Door 10 and Terminal 3 Baggage Claim between Doors 2 and 3 and Doors 6 and 7.

  • Airport Shuttles Las Vegas Nevada - BELLTRANS

    by DragondeKomodo Updated Oct 25, 2012

    There are several options to get your hotel from the airport. I have been 5 times in Vegas and yesterday decided to take for the first time a shuttle service from BELLTRANS rather than a taxi.

    That was the worst welcome that I have received in Vegas. The lady who sold me the tickets said that in 10 minutes the shuttle was going to depart, and after 40 minutes I was still waiting in the bus stop of the airport.

    When I asked why she lied to me, they said OK Sr you can TAKE YOUR MONEY BACK !

    When you arrive to Vegas I strongly recommend to take a cab and enjoy your trip, it is not really much more expensive and you can avoid the terrible service of a company such as BELLTRANS.

    Enjoy the pictures I took when BELLTRANS refunded my money but not my time !

    The deuce

    For $2 - $20 you can get a 2 hour to a 3 day pass on the busses. These will take you from the strip to the outlet mall in the north and the south. They are great for getting around. The main problem is the bus stops are really spread out.

    Make sure to buy a two day pass

    by joiwatani Written Sep 3, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The train

    The fares for the train in Las Vegas are expensive to me, so as a suggestion, it is better to buy a two day pass. Per trip cost $5.00 so that's $10 per trip back and forth to your hotel but if you have a two day pass, you are better off.

    Catch the train at the MGM casino and it stops close to the Venetian Hotel.

    Catching a cab is way cheaper especially if you are lazy to walk. There is so much walking involved in taking a train. You have to looped around the casinos - that's their plan so you are distracted and will gamble...By the time you get to your destination, two hours have easily passed!

    Cheapest way from airport to hotel: Shuttle Bus

    by mingomatic Written Jul 6, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Once you get off the plane, find your way down to where the baggage claim is. Right next to baggage claim 7 or 8, exit the doors next to it, and find the shuttle booth. Its about $7 from airport to hotel. That's about $10 cheaper than a cab. Sometimes, the line is shorter too. There's no good reason why you wouldn't do this instead!

    The Deuce

    by Muzzaa Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A bus that goes up and down the strip from Mandalay Bay all the way to Fremont. It costs $2.00 per trip, or $5.00 for 24 hours of unlimited riding. It stops at every major resort hotel on the strip. The only drawback is the gridlock in front of the MGM. It is a double decker bus, so you get a good view of the street if you are on top.

    deuce

    by iam1wthee Updated Apr 4, 2011

    the deuce is a double decker bus the cost is 2 for the strip and 1.50 off the strip.
    If you want to go from one part of the strip to the other part then look for the sign on the bus that either says south strip or north strip. The drivers are very helpful and patient. During 5pm till 7pm more buses are placed on the road but they can still packup pretty quickly.

    If you are staying at a midstrip hotel there really is little need for buying passes. However if you wish to go to the southernmost part of the strip or to the outlets than you may want to look into it.

    Ride the Deuce Bus!

    by JudiandBill Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Deuce

    For $5 you can buy an all day pass, and hop on and off the bus from the south strip to Downtown and back. When I visited Vegas 5 years ago, the city buses were cheap, but dirty and we saw people literally living on the bus. Not now - these are new, clean and really a great value.

    Go upstairs and try to get the first seat... it's a GREAT view from the top!
