Public Transport

The Las Vegas Monorail stretches from MGM Grand, in the south, to Sahara Avenue Station, to the north, with five stops in between, including the Las Vegas Convention Center. All told, the trains make the 4-mile trip in about 14 minutes, arriving every 4 to 8 minutes. The monorail runs Monday 7 am–midnight; Tuesday–Thursday 7 am–2 am; and Friday–Sunday 7 am–3 am. Fares are $5 for a single-ride ticket, $13 for a one-day pass, $23 for a two-day pass, $29 for a three-day pass, and so forth. Unlimited Ride passes are also available. You can purchase tickets at the vending machines at the entrance to each station or in advance online, where special deals on passes are sometimes offered. Children age five or under ride free.

In 2021, the Las Vegas Convention & Visitor Authority unveiled underground tunnels connecting the old Convention Center to a new West Hall. The tunnels were built by Elon Musk's Boring Company, and Tesla vehicles shuttle visitors from one convention facility to the next. At this writing, the tunnels and their chariots were only available to convention attendees.

A number of properties on the west side of the Strip are connected by free trams that run roughly every 10 minutes. There's one that runs between Excalibur and Mandalay Bay, from 9 am to 12:30 am (2:30 on weekends) one that runs between The Mirage and Treasure Island, from 9 am to 1 am, extending until 3 am on Friday and Saturday; and one that stretches from Monte Carlo through CityCenter to Bellagio, from 8 am to 4 am.
