From what I understand, the bus system works pretty well getting you up and down the strip. However, I think it can get crowded. Strip workers also use the buses. And, of course, you are reliant on their schedules.
The best, cheapest and easiest way for us to get from the airport to the hotel was taking a shuttle bus. We bought a two-way ticket for not that much money.
We had to call he shuttle company a day before we left and they sent a shuttle to the hotel the day and time we wanted (no matter if there were any other guests taking the shuttle or not).
they have a new bus that runs up and down the strip and to the old town of vegas .
they come along in two and are it seems about 2 mins apart the ride was $2 each trip but you can get tickets for longer .
everytime you needed a bus there was always one there.
The easy way to get around Vegas is by the bus. This stops at almost every casino or every 2 casinos. The bus is only $2 each way per person, and is a lot cheaper than taking a cab and takes the same amount of time.
The monorail in Vegas is supposed to be the best way to get around Vegas, however, it's never running, and the rumor is that it jumped the track twice...so we found that the best way to get from one end of the strip to the other is to take the strip bus.
They run every 5-10 minutes, and it's only $5 for the entire day.
Most things are easy to walk to, but the scale of the buildings are so large that it's easy to think that you are closer than you actually are to a place, so if you plan on exploring the entire strip, buy a bus pass.
When arriving in Las Vegas....one can take a cab for about $15 to the strip which is cheap if you are sharing a ride with 2 or more persons, but if your by yourself I would suggest you walk outside the baggage claim and take a shuttle to the strip...they run every 10 minutes and cost $5 a person as long as your hotel is on the strip......not bad !!!!
For $5 per person you can get from the airport to your hotel in a jiffy. If you're alone or with just one other person, the airport shuttle makes sense. From the baggage claim area, look for the "transportation" sign and set outside. Pay at the counter and you're on your way. The shuttle stops at hotels that riders are going to, so if you're further North on the Strip, be prepared for a longer trip.
When you get tired of walking from casino to casino hop on the trolley. Makes stops at most of the major casinos. With the transfer point at the Stratosphere you can get all the way down town as well. Makes stops at the major shopping spots too.
$6.50 will get you an all day pass.
If you get tired of walking the Las Vegas Strip Trolley runs up the strip. It starts at the Tropicana with stops at all the major casinos and up town to Fremont Street. It also takes you to the Las Vegas Hilton & Convention Center. It costs $1.50 (exact change please). That's not free, but much cheaper than a cab or renting a car.
It runs 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. everyday every 15 minutes.
Traffic moves slowly on the Las Vegas Strip, whenever you travel, and in whichever direction. You can use taxis (and pay for the time spent in the cab as well as the distance travelled) or you can use the CAT bus system, paying only for the distance travelled (at $2 a ride). OK, so you may have to stand, and it gets a bit hot and sticky, but it is a useful means of transport in the city.
Ok this is a weird place to ride the bus -- it picks you up and drops you off in the MIDDLE of the block -- then you have to walk far to get a connecting bus. It's very confusing but you can get anywhere in the city for $1.25
