Getting around with the monorail, trams


LAS VEGAS (KTNV) – Got game, concert or convention passes? Stressed just thinking about traffic and parking? Are you like most locals who avoid the Strip at all costs? Don’t stress!

Cheering on our local teams and going out into town doesn’t have to be painful.

Using the Las Vegas monorail system or other streetcars around town can help get you where you go with less stress on “Vegas Like a Local!” from this week.

The Las Vegas Monorail has 7 stops along the resort corridor to help you get to your destination and offers one-way, daily, and 2-7 day passes.

LOCAL COUNCIL: Anyone with a Nevada ID card can purchase a $ 1 one-way pass at any of the monorail’s customer service kiosks upon presentation of your valid Nevada driver’s license, your ID card issued by the state government of Nevada or your Nevada Sheriff Card.

While the monorail can help you get to many places on the Strip, it can make it easier to get to Allegiant Stadium, T-Mobile Arena, and the Las Vegas Convention Center than driving directly to those locations.

Parking at a more remote property and using the monorail can help you lower your parking costs and avoid traffic jams on the day of the event.

The closest monorail stop to Allegiant Stadium and T-Mobile Arena is the MGM Grand station.

A quick walk on Las Vegas Boulevard will bring you to the T-Mobile Arena. To get to Allegiant Stadium, you can either take a 1.4 mile walk or board the Deuce Bus outside New York-New York which will drop you off at Mandalay Bay Road, the gateway to Allegiant.

The Strip has several free tram systems that can also help you get to events more easily.

These include the Aria express tram which connects Bellagio, Crystals shopping center and Park MGM, as well as the Mandalay Bay Tram which connects to Luxor and Excalibur.

Both of these options are great ways to help you get to the T-Mobile Arena and the Park Theater.
