Owner description: The Las Vegas Monorail provides a quick and reliable transportation alternative for leisure and business travelers on the Las Vegas Strip. Directly connected to several Strip resort hotels as well as the Las Vegas Convention Center, the Monorail is the easiest, fastest and most convenient way to get from one end of the Strip to the other in just minutes. Trains arrive every few minutes at each of our seven stations: MGM Grand Station, Bally’s/Paris Las Vegas Station, Flamingo/Caesars Palace Station, Harrah’s/TheLINQ Station, Las Vegas Convention Center Station, Westgate Las Vegas Station and SLS Station. The system is open 7 a.m. to Midnight Monday, 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. Monday through Thursday and 7 a.m. to 3 a.m. Friday through Sunday.
Useful Information: Stairs / lift, Wheelchair access

This one is a true Toss up. At first I was upset. I remember when a ride was $2 or so and a card was 10 rides for $20 or something like that. So I was shocked when it is now $ 5 a ride. Or a three day ticket for $29.

Again as I stated as long as you are on the east side of the stripe it’s ok. The tram is located a good quarter mile east of the hotels on the strip

If you were on the west side it would easily be a 1/2 to 3/4 mike walk just to get on the tram

Depending on how far you are going you could almost walk there first

Very affordable when purchasing the 24 or multi day pass. Convenient locations and definitely a time saver. Avoid taxis whenever possible as it is way more time consuming and very expensive. Overall had a great experience

We just went one time to the this technical interesting system. Unfortunately tickets are quite expensive so can be even cheaper and more comfortable to take a cab, especially when you are not alone. An advantage is, that the railway i quite fast. An other disadvantage is, that the stations are quite far from the attractions.

A quick and efficient transport link up and down the strip is a great idea. Unfortunately this monorail has a serious flaw:

The stations are all poorly located (sometimes very poorly located) with most being quite a distance behind each casino. We wanted to get from the MGM Grand back to our hotel (the Bellagio). The girl on the monorail desk said it'd be a lot quicker than walking. It wasn't.

It took 10 minutes to walk to the monorail station from the casino floor, 10 minutes buying a ticket each and waiting, 5 minutes journey time and then a 20 minute walk from the station, through Paris, over the road and back to our hotel. 45 minutes total. We could have easily walked it all the way in this time, even in the 40 degree Celsius heat! It would have also been much quicker and cheaper in a taxi as the monorail cost $20 for four of us.

Another day we wanted to go to the Stratosphere so we went on the monorail. What a mistake that was! On the map it looks quite close to the last station on the line. Unfortunately when you get there it's at least a 30 minute walk in the searing heat! Please don't do this! (and the Stratosphere's not really worth visiting anyway!)

Thre's only 2 scenarios where I'd recommend using the monorail:

Getting from the strip to the convention centre (and back)

If there's only 2 of you and you are currently on, and are travelling to, the same side of the strip that the monorail is on (and don't mind a lot of walking from the casino floors to the stations)

Otherwise just get taxis everywhere or walk.

The Las Vegas Monorail is a good way to move from one end to the other on The Strip. It goes from the MGM Grand to the SRS and therefore puts you within walking distance of Mandalay Bay and The Stratosphere. It runs out around the golf course behind The Wynn, so if you are wanting to visit The Fashion Mall, Venetian or Wynn properties, I'd suggest walking from the Harrah's stop. Most stations are in the back of the casinos away from The Strip, but it beats trying to walk from one end to the other of the Strip. They run frequently and if you stay on your car will take you back from the end where it stops. It's a chance to see another side to The Strip casinos (and employee parking garages....There's lots of parking there).
