LAS Airport to MGM

Looking for suggestions on transportation to MGM from LAS. I'm seeing a lot of trouble with the shuttles being full and waiting a long time or being one of the last to be dropped off. I'm fine with paying a town car to do the transfer but the mgm is so close to the airport it is really worth to pay the extra money. Taxi rate is about $15, right?

We are flying in on Saturday August 31 (Labor day weekend) arriving at 7pm. (2 of us). We have done the limo thing before. Also any company suggestions? Thank you

That's where I stop reading. If we means more than one person it is cheaper to take a cab than a shuttle to MGM. Figure about $12, and a lot more convenient.

A shuttle will be $7 per person - you might wait for it to fill up and drop off sequence will be at the drivers discretion subject to where others are staying.

A cab should be around $15 to $20 depending on traffic + tip.

A one way limo will be around $60 + tip.

The cab is the most sensible option unless you also want to go via the Welcome sign or a liquor store in which case go for the limo - Presidential Limo is often recommended.

Two of you. That means it would be best to take a taxi and as you say it is $15, the same as the shuttle ($7.50 each). I think Limos charge by the hour (say $65) so many people go to the Las Vegas sign and sightsee down the strip first. Presidential are highly recommended.

Thank you. We actually ended up booking a car as we plan on renting one for 24 hours anyway. From Saturday to Tuesday 2.5 days. It was $93.00 for intermediate. Renting for one day was $45 plus the cost of the the TAXIS $30. I figure spend the extra $20 and we could be more flexible with the car.

Thank you for the input for next time!

I think you will be fine with the shuttle being closer to the beginning of the strip at MGM you will be one of the first dropped off
