Getting Around Las Vegas


For fastest service, find the taxi stand at the rear or front of a hotel or casino. Base fare is $3.30, plus $2.65 per mile. It's generally better to walk to a hotel entrance to get a waiting cab then to try to flag one down on the Strip; drivers are encouraged to wait at hotels. If you aren't near a hotel, most stores and bars will call a taxi for you, or call one directly:

Busses- Deuce on the Strip and Strip & Downtown Express 

The double-decker Deuce on the Strip line connects the Las Vegas Strip with the heart of downtown Las Vegas, including the Fremont Street Experience, and is a great, inexpensive way to get a tour of the famous Strip. It runs 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A one-way fare is $3. The Deuce stops at the Stratosphere and most of the major resorts along the Strip. The ride takes about 20 to 45 minutes, depending on traffic and your destination.
