About The Monorail
The Monorail is by far the best and safest means to travel up and down the Las Vegas Strip. While manages the entire run in 4-8 minutes.
The “Deuce” bus can sometimes take up to an hour to make an entire run due to many stopovers and traffic.
However, you should consider taking the Deuce strip bus if you are planning to go downtown. The monorail is yet to go downtown.
The high-tech monorail consists of nine air-conditioned and well-maintained trains of four cars. Each runs on a single rail and seats 72 passengers with ample space for an additional 152 standing riders.
Its top speed is 50 miles per hour and cruises behind hotels parallel to the east Las Vegas Strip corridor.
There are 3 types of tickets offered by the monorail services; A single ride ticket goes for just $5, where else a full day unlimited ride fare costs $12, a three-day ride costs $22, a four day goes for $ 36, a five day for $43, a seven day for $56, and children under 5 ride for free.
Tickets can either be purchased online or at the Ticket Vending Machine (TVM) located inside all the seven monorail stations. Ticket Vending Machines accepts all major credit cards as well as cash. Take note that the unlimited three-day ticket expires exactly after 72 hours of the first use during normal operating hours.
