    Which would you take from the airport to Luxor? Shuttle like (Bell Trans), Taxi, Uber or Lyft. I have always used the Shuttles, but wondering what most of you all use.

    Thanks!

    I took a cab to Luxor a couple of weeks ago. Came out to over $20. $25 with tip. I’m pretty sure that’s the most I’ve ever paid.

    Shuttle. Uber/Lyft from McCarran is a mind-f*ck.

    I use Uber/Lyft around town but it is a shit show at the airport.
    May cost a bit more but knowing where you are going (like no tunnel) will mitigate the cost difference.

    Lyft. So easy. I had problems with Uber my first time using it but Lyft has been easy peasy and best value.

    I’ve never taken a shuttle-that sounds unpleasant with the multiple drop offs.

    My time in Vegas is too precious to wait to load a shuttle and stop 17 times. Taxi fo me. Haven't had a crazy queue line in forever and snap of the fingers and I'm there.

    Bell Trans shuttle is 9.50 each way and 20+ multiple stops along the way.
    Check out Bell trans shared limo options 18.00 each way in a limo or nice sedan.
    I recommend it now after my first time using it 2 weeks ago and it was A++ for me.

    Disagree. Uber/Lyft from McCarran is easy (although taxis may be slightly more convenient). The shuttles will take fooooooorrrreeeever.

    I like the shuttles. I've never had to wait upon boarding them at McCarran (though I guess some people have) and I enjoy the ride to the hotel. I enjoy getting to see some of the other hotels en-route. I enjoy seeing their porte couchers and the ride along the Strip, or wherever. But, I enjoy driving around LV and my trips are long (usually 2+ weeks) so I'm in no rush. I usually have a rental car for most of my trip.

    We used shuttles on our first three trips (kind of).

    Second trip going to Aria the guy dropped a bunch of people of at Monte Carlo and then went to Mandalay Bay. He apologized that it was his fault for not dropping us first.

    Third trip they just never showed up at the airport and the chick at the booth had no idea where the shuttle was. They refunded my money but that was the last time.

    We just hop a cab and state no tunnel and it's been fine.

    I like a cabbies take on what is happening in town on the way to the hotel. They are generally more talkative than ride share drivers.
