How do you prefer to head to the Strip once you land in Vegas?
I enjoy taking a
I've only ever taken taxis or Lyfts in Vegas and I've gone to Lyft exclusively. I've never had a bad experience and they are so much cleaner than taxis. Also, the drivers are usually less grumpy but not necessarily overly talkative unless I want them to be.
Shuttle for me
Casino arranged limo
Clearly I prefer a limo. And when I go with my wife I do a limo. But just.me? Uber.
Afford? Ride share.
I'll reserve a limo if anyone is with me. Going solo, I got the Bell limo ride share. For one person, it's break even or cheaper than cab fare if theres no traffic or long haul in the cab, for sure cheaper than a cab if there is.
Used to always rent a Yukon/Tahoe, but now rely on the hotel's limo.
If others with me hotel limo. If solo Uber or Lyft.
Omni or Wynn house limo. Only one Strip destination for us.
Shuttle to car rental facility, then Dollar rental car making 3 rights and I am on the Boulevard.
Bell ride share most of the time.
Limo if I have companions
Uber. The only reason I would take a taxi is if there was a crazy surge.
how much does a hotel limo cost? never heard of anyone doing that tbh
I think the smaller ones at Caesar's are posted at $54 or $64 per hour - did not ask them about an airport transfer but they had a sign posted at the main valet with rates when I was there first of this month, and was the first time I ever noticed their house cars advertised for hire. They had sedans a little cheaper and also bigger limos and Sprinter van type vehicles for more.
Uber/lyft if with hubs. Only one solo trip, if solo bell limo share (around $30 round trip pp, so a bargain if solo)
PS just saw @MCann said this first!
Hotel house car / limo
Solo - Uber/lyft
Otherwise - in order:
Hotel limo if comped - still gonna cost $20 in tip.
Rental Car - Will not bother if doing strip or downtown - only if taking other trips
Bus - never done that, but thinking about it for next downtown trip
Bell shuttle to and from (always stay on the strip).
In thinking about it, in my entire life, I've probably taken a cab less than half a dozen times..anywhere*. Spent much more time on public transport (DC, San Francisco, Europe) or rent-a-car than anything else. Never uber nor lyfted, so one of those may be the cab replacement next time I need one.
* in Korea, we used what we referred to as "Kimchi Cabs" if we wanted to get somewhere other than by shoe leather. These were those small, compact cars that held, generally two US sized individuals, and would transport you for an alarmingly small fee (generally pocket change). There were always a line of these outside the EM and NCO clubs on base and were the alternative to the on-post buses. If you had to conduct business on one end of the camp - or another camp entirely - these were the alternatives to taking more time traveling by bus.
