Owning your own car is pretty much a must as travelling by automobile is the main form of transportation in Las Vegas. Unfortunately, this causes the roads to have unbearable traffic during the morning and evening rush, and expect even more trouble during holidays and special events.
Still, it’s one of the fastest ways to get anywhere if you know the ins and outs. The added privacy and the fact that you can take it anywhere you want should also be factored in when getting a car.
Thankfully, car parking is mostly free and hotels also provide valet parking as a service.
Motorcycles and Mopeds
Another good way to travel that is if you can take the desert heat, just be careful of getting a heat stroke and dehydration. A motorcycle might fare better especially in heavily congested roads. Of course, it’s still possible to get stuck in traffic even with a motorcycle.
An alternative to the above options. Great if you’re looking out for your health or the environment. Prepare to spend a lot on rehydration and sunscreen though.
Taxi companies are regulated by the Taxicab Authority so you can be assured that they can be trusted here. But everyone recommends that people should get a cab from a hotel as it’s safer, and hailing a cab from a street might be illegal in some places. Some might not accept credit cards, so be prepared with your cash, or check with the taxi company.
Or the better taxi. There are some limousine services available at the airport for as low as $10, but you’ll have to share it with someone. It’s a good way to make friends though and ride out in style.
A reliable way to get around Las Vegas because of its comprehensive bus system. Double decker buses are available but they mostly roam around The Strip.
It might not be the Party Train, but the monorail is a great way to get around but it’s limited to the area around The Strip as it was constructed with the tourists in mind. At least it’s fast and provides relief from the sun with its air conditioned cabs.
