There are several ways to navigate the Las Vegas Strip including driving, walking, and free transportation. And if you want the full Vegas experience, we recommend trying all of them. However, depending on when you visit Vegas, (we’re looking at you late August) you might want to take advantage of the Las Vegas Monorail and enjoy getting to and from your favorite Vegas attraction in no time, and out of the heat.
Walking is always a preferred method of getting around the Strip but sometimes the temperatures are just too much. And if you decide to rent a car or grab a cab, the traffic can take longer than walking. Enter the Las Vegas Monorail. The train-like transportation takes you up and down the Strip in as little as 14-minutes.
The Las Vegas Monorail runs from MGM Grand to SLS Las Vegas with seven stations along the way including:
- MGM Grand Station
- Bally’s/Paris Las Vegas Station
- Flamingo/Caesars Palace Station
- Harrah’s/The LINQ Station
- Las Vegas Convention Center Station
- Westgate Las Vegas Station
- The SLS Station
Not only is the Las Vegas Monorail a quick way to get to where you are going but thanks to its technological advancements, it is also one of the safest modes of transportation to take in the city and even the United States. Plus, the system is 100 percent green with zero emissions.
Monorail Las Vegas is open Monday, 7 a.m. - midnight; Tuesday - Thursday, 7 a.m. - 2 a.m.; Friday - Sunday, 7 a.m. - 3 a.m. Rates for the monorail start at $12 for an unlimited one-day pass for one person. Multiple-day pass options are also available.
