Nevada Transportation

  • Bus / Shuttles

    Las Vegas Transportation

    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...

  • Monorails / Train

    Las Vegas Transportation

    Deemed to expensive and battling a long history of delays, shutdowns and negative impressions the Las Vegas Monorail makes it simple (and cooler, much, much cooler during those brutal summer months) to get around on the Strip. The longest of the Las Vegas "trains" it is also the only one that costs money. Starting at the site of the old, now...

  • Limousine / Taxi

    Las Vegas Transportation

    There are 16 taxicab companies servicing the Las Vegas valley. The base fare is $2.60 per mile. There is an initial charge of $3.30 when the meter starts to run. If you are starting your trip from the airport, there is an additional charge of $1.80 McCarran Airport Fee. Make sure you have enough cash for the fare because most Las Vegas taxi...

  • Trams / Moving Walkways

    Las Vegas Transportation

    There are three trams that run behind the hotels. Mirage to Treasure Island Tram This short tram only runs between the Mirage and Treasure Island. It runs every ten to fifteen minutes from 9:00 AM to 1:00 AM and is a great way to get from the Mirage Sportsbook to Treasure Island to see Mystere. Easier and quicker than walking and free to...

  • Walking

    Las Vegas Transportation

    This could be under Warnings of Las Vegas, but it is "transportation." While there are various means to get from casino to casino (moving walkways, mono rail, escalator, bus, etc) walking is sometimes the most efficient and fastest method. I once paced a bus for over a mile and ended at my destination only about 200 feet behind the bus. Traffic...

  • Rental Car/Car

    Las Vegas Transportation

    Fox Rent a Car was the cheapest price I found for a rental car at Christmas, and by a considerable amount. You have to take a shuttle bus from the airport to the McCarran Transportation Center, and then another shuttle to the Fox Rent a Car location. It sounds inconvenient, but it really went very smoothly and the shuttles seem to run frequently...

  • Plane/Helicopeter/Airport

    Las Vegas Transportation

    You know you are in Las Vegas right away - slot machines, they are everywhere throughout the airport, more than 1,234 units! If you're over 21, enjoy! McCarran International is located just minutes away from the Strip. It's served by taxicabs operated by various companies. The airport is further served by RTC Transit, the public bus service of...

  • Combined Suggestions

    Las Vegas Transportation

    driving in las vegas particluarly in the strip can be of a hassle since the area is so pedestrian frielndly that it takes forever for the stop lights to go green and then a few seconds later, turn red again and there are many one way streets and there is no U turn slots at the strip so that you would have to endure long detours just to get to other...

  • Information / Sources

    Las Vegas Transportation

    I have to say it was easy to get into and exit from. There is a signal right near the entrance. One other little feature is they have air-conditioned hallways with escalators and the whole garage is inside and it was not too hot because I think they must be recirculating air throughout the parking structure, unlike Planet Hollywood garage parking...

  • Walking is not only eco-friendly, but...

    I recommend walking all the way! It's so much easier. Getting a hotel on the strip and taking a taxi only when necessary is so nice. The traffic on the strip gets insane, and unless you know the back ways around the area, it can literally take an hour to get from end of the strip to the other. While walking you can stop in different hotels along...

  • Luxbus was good fun

    This was a reply to a forum question on how to travel between LA and Las Vegas by bus.We travelled from Anaheim to Las Vegas on the Luxbus. I think it is more touristy than cheap but we enjoyed the trip and learnt quite a bit along the way from the bus driver and the funny Russian assistant. We would travel by them again although probably only one...

  • Driving from Las Vegas to California

    Regarding the question of cost, gas is definitely a factor, but also be sure to look carefully at rental car fees if you plan to rent. Not only does the cost of insurance rack up the cost of the car dramatically vs. the quoted "daily rate," but there can be an additional daily second driver fee if you rent the car in Las Vegas and both you and your...

  • The Deuce

    The Deuce is a double-decker bus that travels up and down the strip. The cost is $2 one-way or $5 for a 24-hour period. It's dependable and easy. I highly recommend it over renting a car if you're going to spend most of your time on or near the strip.

    Nevada is very large, has relatively few roads, and little public transportation outside major cities - and there are only two major cities.You will need a car.There is bus service and passenger train service (rather unreliable) only along the interstate 80 corridor, between Reno and Salt Lake City. There is bus service from Reno to Las Vegas....

  • Lonely desert roads

    Nevada has many sparsely populated areas. As a result, there are long stretches of road without towns or services for many miles. Some of these drives are surprisingly scenic, such as the one along hwy 95 leading to Death Valley. As the lights of Las Vegas exit from the view in the rear view mirror, the road narrows and stretches westward, with...

    Whoever dubbed Highway 50 the “Loneliest Road in America” hasn’t been in Canada. In August 2004, I took this picture because it was the only time that I didn’t see another vehicle either in front, behind, or coming. It didn’t last for long. Sure enough, within a minute, we sent someone on out ahead of us to check for Nevada Highway Patrol. He...

  • Reno Tahoe International Airport

    Unless you live within 100 miles of Minden, probably the best way to get to Carson Valley is to fly into Reno Tahoe International Airport, rent a car or van and drive south for about 45 miles. The airport is very modern and efficient. My baggage arrived 2 minutes after I had arrived in the pick up area!Ten major airlines fly in and out of Reno...

    To get to Nevada, you can either DRIVE, hop onto a bus or PLANE. We chose the last option. ;-)) Lazy us! If you intend to visit the many beautiful national parks here, you must DRIVE, DRIVE, DRIVE!!! Whatever it is - whether you beg, borrow or steal a car... just make sure that you DRIVE! Forget about joining a coach tour. They'd probably pack ten...

  • By plane or driving.

    If you're just planning on visiting different hotels I suggest either walking or taking a cab. You don't want to hassle with the traffic and everything is relatively close. However, if you are planning on visiting places outside of the Las Vegas area, ie the Grand Canyon, Red Rock Canyon, etc. its best to rent a car.

    Get on the free trams and moving path connecting most major hotels on the strip, it will save you lots of walking and quite fun to ride the trams.

    We got there by a rented car. You can also fly there though. The airport is really near the city centre!From europe for example BA and Virgin fly to Las Vegas via San Francisco.You NEED a car!! Las Vegas is a typical US car town, pedestrians are not so well thought of.. Although the Strip is ok with wide side ways and pedestrian crossing bridges.

    Greyhound - surely not the most comfortable way to get to Las vegas but... well, coming in from Kingman AZ and arriving at night, when you get to the top of the hill/mountain just before reaching the city, you have a great panoramic view over the strip: millions and zillions of lights: what a sight! At that moment I understood why Las Vegas'...

The casino lights are worth the extra money to rent a car when you get there. It's a view you'll never forget.Driving is the best, but beware at what time. Noon rush is horrible. 5 pm traffic is worse. If you go out in...

  • Fly, or by car

    Rent a car if you are travelling outside of Las Vegas. If you are flying in and staying on the Strip in Vegas, than there are plenty of cabs, shuttles, and trams, from hotel to hotel. Walking is great. The night lights are the best when you walk

    Your best bet is to walk everywhere. Vegas is not that big and all the big hotels are all down the strip. Each hotel is right next to the other. There is a lot of heavy traffic, so walk,.....you'll be happier.
