When you enter a taxicab, the driver will start the taximeter (referred to as the “drop”) and an initial charge of $3.30 will register. If a taxi ride originates at McCarran International Airport, an additional airport surcharge of $1.20 per trip is added to the taximeter. After the initial “drop”, the taximeter will assess a fare of $2.20 per mile ($.20 for each 1/11th of a mile traveled). If the taximeter senses that the taxicab is moving less than 8-12 MPH, the taximeter will assess a charge of $.20 (twenty cents) every 25.7 seconds ($28.00 per hour waiting time). That is why the taximeter continues to accumulate charges even when the taxicab is not moving. Once the taximeter senses that the taxicab is moving at a speed greater than 8-12 MPH the fare calculates on the actual distance traveled.

This is taken from : http://www.taxi.state.nv.us/FaresFees.htm

So as long as you don't hit traffic then 20-25 dollars plus tip.

You could take CAT bus 117 to the South Strip transfer terminal and then the Deuce on up to the MGM. 5 dollars for an all day pass. Ride as much as you want.
