Las Vegas Transport Guide
Here are the best ways to get around Las Vegas:
Hotels along Las Vegas Boulevard double up as taxi ranks due to the volume of people frequenting each venue. Waiting at a hotel is the safest option for catching a cab as every driver is required to carry an ID and offer meter-controlled fares. To save money , it’s a good idea to be open to cab sharing with fellow Las Vegas visitors who are heading in the same destination.
Travellers with minimal baggage who fly into McCarran International Airport and are staying in Downtown Las Vegas can catch the CAT bus, which also happens to be the cheapest form of transport from the main airport. Find the SDX (Strip/Downtown Express) bus, which predominately services the main strip.
Gain your independence in Las Vegas by hiring a car. To travel long distances or to explore the Las Vegas city area, car hire is a great idea. Las Vegas also has some great points of interest slightly out from the centre including the dramatic Hoover Dam and Red Rock Canyon (Hello road trip!). Just remember that Americans drive on the right!
Limos motor around this desert city en masse, so catching a stretch vehicle with friends either from the airport to your hotel, or just simply for a trip down the infamous Las Vegas strip won’t break the bank. Not to mention, riding in a limo is lot cooler than stuffing everyone into a cab! Fares typically cost an additional US$10 per person in these luxury vehicles compared to a taxi ride.
