transportation to and around Las vegas

Transportation Information

McCarran International Airport (LAS) has nonstop service from 120 cities in the U.S. The Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino is located less than 10 miles from the airport, where you will find numerous ground transportation options available to get you from the airport to the hotel. 


Taxis are a reliable form of transportation used throughout Vegas for decades. With several companies to choose from, you never have to worry about there not being enough drivers at a late hour. Unlike other cities, you cannot hail a taxi on the street in Las Vegas. Taxis are required to pick up passengers at a physical address, such as a hotel taxi line. The airport and hotels have specific areas for taxi pick-up, usually near the valet or main entrance.

Rental Cars:

The McCarran International Airport Rental Car Center houses 10 car rental companies in one location. The center is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, with continuous shuttle service to and from airport terminals. There are several standalone rental sites across Las Vegas and a few on-site at some hotels, but the airport is the most convenient.

Ride Share:

Ridesharing, commonly associated with Uber and Lyft, is a convenient option for visitors to get around the destination, no matter where you are in Las Vegas. It’s as simple as downloading the rideshare app of your choice, inputting some information, and waiting for your ride to show up. The airport has a designated ride-share pickup area with ample signage to guide you there.

Limousines are a fun and fancy way to get you from the airport to your resort and around the city in style. While limos are available at McCarran International Airport, your best bet would be to make a reservation. If you’re celebrating or just want to feel like a Vegas VIP, book a party limo or ask about luxury Strip tours.


The Deuce is Las Vegas’ public transportation operated by the Regional Transportation Commission. While the bus runs throughout the destination, there are two routes you can specifically take for the Strip and downtown. Deuce on the Strip will stop at just about every resort on the Strip, while DVX runs partially through downtown and Fremont Street. The Downtown Loop is a free shuttle that brings visitors to the exciting scene in Downtown Las Vegas, including the Arts District and Fremont Street Experience.
