Las Vegas Airport Transportation Overview
So, you’ve finally landed in Vegas, ready to kick off a fantastic vacation. You’ve got just one more obstacle: how to get from the airport to your final destination. No trip to Las Vegas, or anywhere else for that matter, is complete without buying transportation. Luckily, you have many options from the minute you set foot in the airport.
If your trip will be confined mostly to the Strip and you plan to walk or use the airport to visit the casinos, taking a shuttle is probably the most economical choice. Shuttles are located at the west exit (near the 8-13 baggage claims). Shuttles are a group service, but for a very low price they will transport you to either Strip hotels or off-the Strip hotels. Shuttle trips to areas just outside of Las Vegas can also be arranged at the airport. You’ll just need to look up some phone numbers and make a few phone calls.
Some people like to rent their own cars from one of the 10 car rental companies at the airport. Just pick the one that you like best and go. Renting a car will allow you to see other attractions around the Las Vegas area with more freedom. If you want to go to the Grand Canyon but don’t want to be limited by a tour that may not stop for as long as you need to really explore, this is a good option. Also, if you want to visit local Red Rock Canyon for a hike, having a car will make it easier to get there.
You could take a taxi, and there is no shortage of taxis in Las Vegas. They are eight different taxis that serve the airport. They are certainly a convenient way to get around, and you can go anywhere, if you are willing to pay the price. As opposed to taking a shuttle, you don’t have to worry about multiple stops on the way to your hotel, so if you are really in a rush to check in, this may be your choice. After you get to your hotel, if you plan mostly to go up and down the Strip, but you want to get faster than your feet or the airport will get you there, it is easy to flag one down.
