    Hi folks.
    Just looking for a wee bit of advice on getting taxi from airport to the nyny hotel. Ive seen other threads telling people to ask taxi drivers to go certain ways to get to different casinos. With nyny being in south end of the strip should i be asking the driver to take a specific route to save some cash?

    Just tell him to take Paradise and onto Tropicana. If he asks if you want to go the fastest way say no, you want Paradise and Trop. It's about double the distance if he takes the tunnel and interstate.

    Just a small correction. Paradise is one way to the terminal. From the terminal, it would be Swenson to Tropicana.

    If you catch the WAX bus at level zero, it will go nonstop from the airport to NYNY for $2. Luggage allowed.

    But, only runs about once per hour.

    My advice: don't specify the route. If you see they are taking you through the tunnel, you've just won yourself a free taxi ride. :evillaugh

    relax and wait for WAX; $2.00 or $1.00 for us oldies and you are there in about 4 minutes, luggage and all.

    Taxi Rules

    Our taxi driver told us en route to the airport that drivers can be fined for plumping their fares by taking the tunnel unnecessarily. So as noted above you may earn yourself a free ride if your driver opts for the tunnel.
