Getting Around in Las Vegas
Like many other large cities, getting to and from places in Las Vegas can be stressful and time-consuming. That said, Las Vegas is mostly organised in a gridlike pattern and therefore isn't too hard to navigate. The city is also home to a fairly comprehensive network of bus routes, though other forms of public transport are limited.
Public transport in Las Vegas
Run by the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC), the bus system in Las Vegas is affordable and highly developed. Service is provided along residential and downtown routes, including the Strip. There are also express services as well as special services during sporting and concert events.
The Las Vegas Monorail is primarily intended for tourists. It serves the Strip, running between the MGM Grand and SLS Las Vegas with several stops in between.
Taxis in Las Vegas
Cab fares in Las Vegas can get expensive, depending on the distance to the destination and the traffic conditions. However, they can be useful for short distances when walking is not a viable option.
Ride-hailing applications such as Uber and Lyft are also available and can be used to summon a cab to one's location within minutes.
Driving in Las Vegas
Expats with a valid licence from another country may legally drive in Nevada until their licence expires or until they are officially resident in the state. Once resident, expats will need to acquire a local licence. This involves taking theory, practical and visual tests.
