Getting Around Las Vegas:
Las Vegas is a compact city with many attractions available in the central area around the Strip and downtown. Transportation options are numerous and varied, from renting a vintage Cadillac Eldorado or new Corvette, to hopping on a city bus, taking a cab or riding the Las Vegas Monorail, one of the most modern transportation systems in the world.
If you're flying into Vegas, the most economical way to get to your hotel is probably on an airport shuttle. The shuttles gather just outside the terminal in the same area as the taxis. Shuttle service to the Strip or downtown costs less than $10, and busses run 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Check with your hotel to arrange the return trip to McCarran.
Car Rentals - The average price for renting an economy car in Vegas is around $25 to $30 per day, but the sky's the limit if you want to cruise the Strip in something a little more extravagant. Rates will rise on holiday weekends or when there's a large convention in town. As for driving the city is laid out in a grid format, and easy to navigate, be sure to keep a map handy, though.
Parking - The good news is that free parking is abundant. Virtually every major hotel offers free valet parking (it's customary to tip valets $2 when they retrieve your car; this is still a great deal compared to virtually every other major U.S. city.)
Limousine Services - There's certainly something to be said for seeing Las Vegas in style, and you can do so for as low as $35 an hour. Options and pricing vary widely depending on the vehicle and services you desire.
Public Transportation - Public bus transportation in Las Vegas is operated by Citizens Area Transit (CAT). There are numerous bus routes throughout the area; a one-way fare on the Strip costs $2, and slightly less in the rest of the city. Buses on the Strip run 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Taxis - You shouldn't have any trouble finding a cab in town. Fares start with $2.70 on the meter, and $1.80 is then added for every additional mile. All Las Vegas Taxi Companies have Lift equipped Vans that can accommodate one Wheelchair or Scooter.
The Las Vegas Monorail - The Las Vegas Monorail travels along the east side of The Strip behind the resorts. Runs 7 days a week from 7 a.m. - 2 a.m. Monday through Thursday and until 3 a.m. Friday through Sunday from the Sahara Hotel to the MGM Grand with the following stops in between - Las Vegas Hilton, Las Vegas Convention Centre, Harrah's/Imperial Palace, the Flamingo/Caesar's Palace and Bally's/Paris. See website for individual, multi-day and group ticket prices.
Vegas on Foot - With all of these transportation options, you will still cover a lot of the city on foot. That said, the length of the Strip can be deceptive... it takes more time than you would think to walk from one end to the other. But parts of the Strip must be experienced on foot: where else in the world can you marvel at dancing fountains (the Bellagio), see an erupting volcano (the Mirage), or watch pirates and sirens entertain on ships nightly? (Treasure) Not to mention downtown's Fremont Street Experience, this is a haven for pedestrians.
