Home / Transport / Monorails

Free Monorails:

There are a number of free monorails in operation on the strip. Using them can shorten journey time between some casinos and cut down the amount of walking you need to do.

Mirage – Treasure Island:

There is a one stop monorail/tram service that runs between these two casinos. The stop at Mirage us outside in front of the main entrance. At Treasure Island the stop is inside the building up a set of escalators near the Mystere theatre and entrance to the parking garage.

Bellagio/Vdara – Crystals Shopping Centre – Monte Carlo/Aria:

This is another useful free monorail service. It runs from the Bellagio spa tower (go through the conservatory and past the Sensi restaurant). You can walk to this stop from Vdara via an internal walkway. Has a stop at Crystals shopping centre and then carries onto Aria and Monte Carlo. The stop is located near the front entrance to the Aria casino near to the poker room. From Monte Carlo it is through the street of dreams shopping area towards the back of the property.

Excalibur – Luxor – Mandalay Bay:

The last free monorail is at the South end of the strip. It runs from the tower at the front of Excalibur, near to the aerial walkway to New York New York to Mandalay Bay. In this direction the monorail only serves Excalibur – Mandalay Bay. To get to Luxor you need to change train at Mandalay Bay.

In the opposite direction Mandalay – Excalibur, there are two trams, one runs express to Excalibur and another stops at Luxor. It is well signposted so you should be able to get on the right one easily.

You can also get between these three casinos via an indoor walkway that takes you through Mandalay Place shopping centre.

Las Vegas Monorail:

This is the one you have to pay for. Bear in mind if you are planning on using the monorail to get around on the strip (the Harrahs/The Quad – MGM section of the rail) that the stations are located at the back of the casinos they are situated in. In some instances it may be quicker to walk to your location. For example, if you want to go from Treasure Island to Bellagio you may be tempted to pick up the monorail from Harrahs to Ballys. In this circumstance, it may actually be better to get the free tram between TI and Mirage and then walk the rest of the way to Bellagio, rather than walking through both Harrahs and Ballys casinos to reach the monorail stops.
