Going to Las Vegas? Well, one of the most convenient and safest ways to travel to and from the McCarran International Airport and the surrounding areas is with a Las Vegas airport shuttle.
Basically all flights in and out of the city go through Las Vegas McCarran International Airport, the busiest and largest airport in Nevada.
Las Vegas airport shuttles to the Strip and other locations in the city are almost as much as taxis. While they might not say “I’m living it up in luxury in Vegas” they are the most economical way of getting to your hotel on the Strip or downtown from the airport.
Most of the city’s airport shuttle services utilize the share a ride model, where you share the ride with a couple of other passengers. Although these vans or mini buses are not as luxurious as you might want, you will still get the door to door service you expect.
For a little more comfort and convenience, some of the companies are even offering luxury airport shuttle services as well where you share a ride in a limo or private car instead of the usual passenger vans.
