The flight will save you a couple of hours, even with all the airport early arrivals and hassle. More to the point, however, its cost is really about the same.

In any case, Lux Bus is one way to go via bus:


Greyhound too.

You only need to be at the airport 1 hour before for flights to Las Vegas and when you arrive in Las Vegas, the airport is only 5 to 10 minutes from the hotel zone. If you plan to stay in Manhattan or Hermosa Beach (as you've mentioned in your other thread), it will take 2 hours to reach the nearest Greyhound Bus station using public transit. It would be much faster (3 hours or so) to fly since you'll already be at LAX when you transfer to a bus for the Greyhound station in downtown Los Angeles.

We used Lux Bus in April. I thought it was a great way to travel.

We slept most of the way back as we were exhausted after a quick trip to Vegas, but even going there i thought the 4.5/5 hours went very fast. A no fuss way to go. They picked us up from our hotel in Anaheim, but they had also collected others from LA hotels that joined the bus. We stayed at Harrahs which was one of the drop offs. I would use this service again as we are planning on returning sometime soon!!
