6. How to move around and where to go___


Las Vegas is a compact city with many attractions available in the central area around the Strip and downtown. Transportation options are numerous and varied, from renting a vintage Cadillac Eldorado or new Corvette, to hopping on a city bus, taking a cab or riding the Las Vegas Monorail, one of the most modern transportation systems in the world.

If your clients are flying into Vegas, the most economical way to get to the hotel is probably on an airport shuttle. The shuttles gather just outside the terminal in the same area as the taxis. Shuttle service to the Strip or downtown costs less than $10 and buses run 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The average price for renting an economy car in Vegas is around $25 to $30 per day, but the sky's the limit if your client wants to cruise the Strip in something a little more extravagant.

The good news is that free parking is abundant. Virtually every major hotel offers free valet parking. Parking is not allowed on the Strip itself and several blocks of Fremont Street form a pedestrian mall, the Fremont Street Experience and are closed to vehicular traffic. The best bet to park on the Strip or downtown is in one of the hotel lots or parking garages. Be sure to take note on where the vehicle is left, or even better, take advantage of valet parking.

Public bus transportation in Las Vegas is operated by Citizens Area Transit (CAT). There are numerous bus routes throughout the area; a one-way fare on the Strip costs $2, and slightly less in the rest of the city. Buses on the Strip run 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Finally, the $600 million Las Vegas Monorail is a transportation marvel. The four-mile route runs as far south as the MGM Grand Hotel, and as far north as the Sahara Hotel. There are seven stations in all. Single-ride tickets are $3; 10-ride ticket books cost $20; a single-day pass is $10 and a three-day pass is $25. Hours of operation are 7 a.m. to 2 a.m., seven days a week.
