    6 of us are getting into town next Wed about 8:30AM. We're staying at NYNY and leaving around lunch on Saturday. I'm trying to justify getting a presidential limo but I'm not sure I wanna drop the $. Sooooo if a seasoned veteran can help me out with some questions.

    1. How much SHOULD I pay for a taxi ride to NYNY for 6 people assuming the driver isn't a prick. Also, will we all fit in one of the mini van taxi's or will we need two?

    2. I HATE this slooooow option, but same question for the shuttle. Also where do they start dropping? Is NYNY at the begining or end of their drop off route?

    3. From most of the posts on here, presidential seems to be the best option. Is that still accurate?

    Thanks for any feedback!!

    For the minivan taxi I assume 6 people can fit... 1 in the front, 2 in the middle and 3 in the back. It would definitely be the cheapest option considering it is one of the closest to get to from the airport, it is across from MGM.

    For 6 people I would imagine a limo would really get up there.

    The shuttle shouldn't be a consideration. It would be around $8 a person probably. A taxi to NY NY shouldn't be more than $15, even with extra person charges and a tip, definitely under the $48 a shuttle would cost

    You'll need two cabs. I believe five per cab is the limit per state law.

    As mentioned, the shuttle is going to charge you per person so would be at least as expensive as two cabs and likely more.

    I'm guessing $20 bucks per cab should cover the fare AND tip if you aren't long hauled.

    Presidential's web site says their stretch limo will hold six (though some of you might be carrying you luggage on your laps). I believe it runs in the $70 (plus tip) neighborhood.

    I don't know if Presidential is the "best", but I've used them a handful of times and have been very pleased.

    I assume you are all on the same flight. If not, well....

    If you are... a limo will cost about the same. Luggage will be tight.

    $135 roundtrip in a Chrysler 300. A little strip tour, bottle of champagne, just a little more comfort.cab will be $20-25 plus tip and you will need 2.

    When I went with a big group, we had six people and needed two limos. One for people, and one for luggage.

    WAX bus ftw! :poke::evillaugh

    The RTC's WAX bus won't take much longer than a taxi and drops off on Tropicana next to NYNY. $2/person. But it really depends on if you don't care about saving a few bucks or just dealing with a taxi. For short trips like that, and if the bus schedule works, I'd do that.
