See lots of threads on the WAX, but couldn't find anything with a search for taking the CX to the strip. I guess the downside it only goes to terminal 3 and is therefore a bit less convenient...but anyways: I'm arriving on Friday for a last second booked trip (this seems to be a recurring theme around here lately) on Southwest scheduled for 2:30 PM arrival. From my understanding I can go down to zero level, take a terminal bus to terminal 3 which is also at zero level so that the CX bus stop will be right there, and RTC is currently showing northbound departures at 3 and 3:30 so I shouldn't wait long even if I miss the first one. I can take that to the Sands/LVB stop by Fashion Show mall, and then walk south to the Mirage by 4 or 4:30. I will have only my Swiss Gear backpack for luggage. Are there any gaping holes in this plan? Will just taking a shuttle for 7 plus tip take a significantly less amount of time (which I guess is always a crapshoot)?
