    Taxi heading down Paradise then turning down Sands then onto the strip?
    Or should they continue onto spring mountain road and come in on the back side?

    Thanks

    I can't imagine it would make much difference if they pulled in off the strip or from Torme behind TI.

    I agree... can't imagine it'd be much of a difference.

    Just don't let them take the highway....our guy pulled that crap on us last year saying it was "heavy traffic" I didn't even realize until we were on the on ramp. Ran up the meter about$5 more than it should've been. Expect about $15 if they go right way

    $15 might be a little on the low side. I've had fares approach $15 going from the airport just to Monte Carlo in low traffic (and no tunnel, obviously). And Monte is a lot closer than The Mirage.

    Sorry.. $15 was an estimate because when he took the highway I know it shouldn’t have taken that long and it was about $22. I gave him $20 and no tip.
