With a little planning, your Las Vegas adventure can be hassle-free from start to finish. An important thing to consider when preparing for your trip is transportation.
Knowing in advance how you’ll get from place to place will save you valuable time and allow you to enjoy your time in Vegas to the fullest. Here are some top transportation options for Vegas visitors.
The Deuce Bus
Locals call the bus the “Deuce” because it has two floors, much like the famous double-decker buses of London. This gold-painted bus runs 24 hours a day to ensure that no matter what time it is, you can get where you need to go.
The bus is certainly the most affordable option when it comes to navigating the city, and many would call it the most convenient as well. That’s why you’ll see locals and guests from all walks of life hopping on the Deuce.
Another public transportation option is the Strip & Downtown Express (SDX). The bus is an express, limited-stop service connects the Strip to the downtown area. The SDX is a convenient and affordable way to get to some of the most popular attractions in the city.
The SDX runs from 9 a.m. to midnight every day of the week.
Uber & Lyft
Another option for getting from point A to B is a car service, such as Uber or Lyft. It’s quick and easy to book a ride online. However, you might find this to be a more expensive option than other forms of transportation. Las Vegas also has a taxi service, which you may want to compare with Uber and Lyft to find the most cost-effective option.
Tahiti Village Shuttle Service
The Tahiti Village Shuttle stops include the following: the Mirage, New York-New York Hotel & Casino, Downtown Fremont, Red Rock Canyon, Town Square, nightlife hotspots, and grocery stores.
General Vegas Transportation Tips
Although Downtown Vegas does have a variety of parking garages, you might find public transportation to be the easiest option. At first, it may seem more convenient to drive yourself rather than take a bus or shuttle; however, parking hassles are likely to change your mind.
Don’t waste vacation time looking for a parking space — opt for public transportation whenever possible. If you do choose to drive, research parking options in the area of your destination and figure out where you’re going to park ahead of time.
