How To Travel Alongside Las Vegas Blvd.

Remember, all roads and alleys are closed that are heading westbound onto Las Vegas Boulevard between Sahara and Mandalay Bay Road from Koval Lane: Sands, Reno and Harmon avenues. So, your best bet to travel in and around the strip is using the monorail or RTC buses.

Monorail Cost: $1 (For Locals)

The Las Vegas Monorail will be operating nonstop starting at 7 am on Tuesday, Dec. 31 through Thursday, Jan. 2, at 2 am. Locals can purchase single-ride monorail tickets for $1 only from 10 am to 11 pm. They can be bought at any station except the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Regular single ride tickets cost $5 and other multiple-day passes are available starting at $13. Purchase monorail tickets HERE.


RTC Bus Cost: FREE

RTC is offering FREE rides on all routes on New Year’s Eve! This free offer starts on New Year’s Eve at 6 pm and ends New Year’s Day at 9 am. RTC is also including extended and 24-hour bus routes to some of their other routes.
