    What route should I tell the cabby to take from Terminal 3 to the Four Queens? About how much should it cost?

    just make sure to tell driver no freeway!

    wasn`t paying attention last trip and I am sure it added fifteen bucks to the total.

    I think it should be approximately 30 dollars.

    i belive thats the new terminal for united ,
    have taken cabs a few times to ballys back and forth and its between 15 -20 depending on weather im coming or going.
    i do know the new terminal is a little farther than original.

    sorry thats the best i can do but i belive you should still not take the tunnel go out front entace but stay off the strip run parrell behind it,thats my guess.

    im sure you will get some help from others

    you do want to take the freeway. Swenson to tropicana to the freeway north to Downtown would be your fastest from Terminal 3.

    Dependant on the time of day. Anytime near rush hour, it would probably be best to take the surface streets, avoid the Strip.

    the op did refer to cost to downtown so taking the freeway would definitely cost quite a bit more but would likely be a little bit quicker.

    Could you let me know what you end up paying and the time it took to get there.
    I'm collecting cab data to compare with the WAX bus which is $2 and at the time you are going takes about 30 minutes although one only leaves every hour so I suspect the wait time exceeds the wait for the cab.
    Thanks.

    we took the wax bus from downtown to the terminal a couple of trips back and were amazed how quick and painless it was.

    now our direct airline goes to terminal 3 so the wax would be a bit more hassle.

    about 3 trips back the cab took us by freeway to el cortez and it cost us over forty bucks! as far as I can recall closer to forty five.
