Las Vegas FAQ
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.

Before our first trip to Las Vegas we didn’t consider how we would get around once we got there. After all the Strip’s only about four miles long, surely we could walk everywhere?

And depending on the weather, how much time you’ve got and your fitness levels you can... but there are other options.

Please have a look at the questions and answers below. If you can’t find what you’re after please contact us through the form at the bottom of this page.

Q. How much is a bus ride along the Strip?

A. The Deuce bus is $7 for a 24 hour pass or $15 for a 3 day pass - you need the correct change before you get on. It starts off from the Downtown Transit Center and there are stops all the way up the Strip next to most of the main hotels.

Q. How can I get around Las Vegas without spending a fortune on taxis?

A. The Strip is about four miles long and walking is the cheapest easiest way to get around. When it’s really hot you might not be able to get far comfortably. In that case check out the bus or the monorail.

Q. Where’s the best place to get a taxi from on the Strip?

A. You can’t hail them so it’s best to pick up a taxi from one of the hotels which usually have a whole line of them.

Q. I’m staying at Caesars Palace next week but I’ve never been to Las Vegas before. Can you tell me how much I’ll need to get a taxi from the airport to the hotel?

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. More tips on Las Vegas taxis.

Q. Do you need to give the driver the exact money when you get on the Las Vegas bus?

A. You do on the Deuce bus which stops off all the way along the Strip. Information about tickets

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?

A. The monorail’s 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.
