Las Vegas Monorail “Best Bet” for New Year’s Eve

December 29, 2009 by  

While our city is hosting several hundred thousand revelers on New Year’s Eve, the Las Vegas Monorail will continue to transport people from one end of the Strip to the other, even when Las Vegas Blvd. closes to vehicles and buses. The Monorail is a safe and easy travel option for Nevada residents who want to partake in the festivities on the Strip. Locals can ride the Monorail for only $1 per ride.

“Locals who use the Monorail can spend less time traveling and more time celebrating, and best of all – we’ll do the driving for you,” said Ingrid Reisman, vice president of corporate communications for the Las Vegas Monorail. “Our $1 local fare helps make this unforgettable holiday a little more affordable for the people that live, work and play in Las Vegas.”

To receive the local fare, Nevada residents must present valid Nevada picture ID at the Las Vegas Monorail Customer Service Booths located at the MGM Grand and Sahara Monorail stations. The MGM Grand Customer Service Booth will be open on New Year’s Eve from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. The Sahara Customer Service Booth will be open on New Year’s Eve from 11 a.m. – 11 p.m. Locals can purchase up to four single-ride tickets (two round trips) per valid Nevada ID on New Year’s Eve. Booths will be closed on New Year’s Day.

As the rooftop fireworks displays are commencing the start of a new year, the Las Vegas Monorail will continue to offer reliable, non-stop service until 3 a.m., with trains arriving at each station every few minutes.
