Most frugal is walking.

Best is probably limousine.

Somewhere in the middle are cabs and shuttles

Definately take a taxi. We were there in Feb. and had to tell the driver no tunnel twice. ( We did that once from the Rio and it cost us $5 more.) It cost us with tip $20 and were there in about 15 minutes.

Have a great trip!!!

"We prefer the shuttles/"

Well then, take a shuttle.

"Best" and "most frugal" are not the same, and another factor is the number of people in your party. The more of you there are, the more frugal a taxi becomes.

Put on your back pack and comfy shoes and start hiking. You should be there in about an hour and a half. You will be tired, sweaty and thirsty. You will be so worn out from the trip and the hike that Day 1 will be a waste.

Or, let the moths out of your pocketbook and spring for a cab.

It's not very far from the strip. Take a taxi. Max ride of $20 but most likely less (unless you get tunneled).

No such thing as a "max ride." Traffic, construction, accidents, unscrupulous cabbies and other unforeseeables can always affect the route and length of trip.

Take a cab.

Shuttles are not a great option in Vegas as compared to some other cities. It will take you a lot less time and won't cost you much more than a shuttle just to take a cab.

But if you must...

If you have more than 2 people in your party, a cab is more frugal. Otherwise, shuttles are probably slighty more frugal, however, shuttles tend to be slower. I am willing to pay the extra few dollars to just jump in a cab and be taken straight to my hotel and get on with my vacation.

I've used C.L.S. and Grey Line for downtown shuttles and Ritz shuttle service from airport to Gold Coast which is next to Rio. It took approx. 10 extra minutes using the shuttle. Not a life or death situation for me as I am a frugal person.
