    Just wondering of the City Center tram actually goes to Monte Carlo or does it end at Aria and you walk through Aria to MC?

    If were staying at Vdara, what is the best way to take the tram to Monte Carlo? I'm thinking we would get on at the Bellagio station but would we get off at Aria? Or is there a further stop at Monte Carlo?

    If your staying at Vdara, take a quick walk over to Bellagio and take the tram from Bellagio to Monte Carlo and back. Here is a video:

    When you get to Bellagio, you'll see a sign that say Trams. That will take you to Monte Carlo with a quick stop at Crystals on the way.

    It essentially drops you at the southern end of Aria, just before the entrance to the connecting "mall" between the two, just at the top of the escalator from the Starbucks...

    hope that helps.

    Very short walk (couple of minutes at best depending on how able you are) to MC itself. Easy access to both Aria (poker room/sports book side of casino) and MC from that stop, I almost never use the Crystals stop even tho that says "Aria" as well.

    I saw the escalator is there an elevator for scooters and strollers?

    Yes, right before the escalator (you see it in the video up top of the escalator). Also, there are hallways that have glass doors you can push a button to automatically open them.

    As everyone said the Tram loads people in between MC and Aria, goes to Crystals, and ends at Bellagio. We were on it several times per day.

    Quick, convenient, and free!

    You gotta walk through the connecting mall pretty fast to make it in a couple of minutes. Most people probably take closer to 3 or 4.

    Is it me, but if you're outside the MC entrance on LV Blvd, and you're trying to navigate up the strip to beyond Bellagio, using that tram really doesn't save you time? It is generally faster to walk outside right?

    True, if you are not already inside MC, it takes longer to go through the whole MC, through the mall to wait for a tram which actually doesn't cut that much time out unless you're going to Bellagio.

    True, if your walking from MC to Bellagio (or back), and don't want to step onto the properties of MC, City Center, or Bellagio, it's better to walk across the street at Monte Carlo Way and Bellagio Way to the east side and bypass the area on the west side. If you're already on their properties, the Tram is better.
    But until CC has more user friendly access on the Blvd, as well as putting in some restaurants, shopping, etc ON the Strip, CC will struggle.
    They need something to entice people INTO the casino and property not avoiding it. That's why most people, like me, would rather walk from PH to MGM on the east side and putting up with the blandness between Harmon and MGM rather than hop, skipping, and jumping around the maze at City Center.

    You take the tram to Aria/Crystals/Monte Carlo. To get to Bellagio, you go down an escalator to a corridor. Super easy access from Vdara.
