about Las Vegas Transport
The Las Vegas FAQ section about Las Vegas transport includes some of the questions we’ve received about getting around Sin City.

A. The cost of the taxi ride will vary depending on how busy it is when you arrive. It’s best to allow around $30 in case it’s busy. And don’t agree to the taxi driver taking you through the I-215 tunnel as this will cost you more.

Q. How frequently does the Las Vegas Monorail run?
A. The trains run really frequently - every 4-12 minutes.
Q. What’s best to get the Monorail or the Deuce Bus?
quicker than the bus so if you’re in a hurry and the monorail stops where you want to go it’s probably your best bet. It does only stop at seven stations though. Price-wise a 24 hour pass that lets you on and off the monorail as many times as you like in 24 hours will cost you $13 whereas a 24 hour pass on the
Las Vegas bus
will only cost you $7. So if you’re on a budget go for the bus.
