Las Vegas Monorail Will Start Running Again this Month

Vegas is getting back to normal. Casinos and hotels have opened up, buffets are back and now you will be able to ride the monorail once again. The Las Vegas Monorail, closed for more than a year because of the coronavirus pandemic, will resume service starting May 27.

The 3.9-mile elevated system along the Las Vegas Strip moves passengers the length of the resort corridor in less than 15 minutes, at speeds of up to 50 miles per hour.

“The Las Vegas Monorail has provided an important and convenient transportation solution for both leisure visitors and convention attendees,” Steve Hill, president and CEO of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, said in a statement as reported by Las Vegas Sun. The LVCVA acquired the Monorail in December 2020.

The monorail will run from 7 a.m. to midnight on Mondays; 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. Tuesday’s through Thursdays; and 7 a.m. to 3 a.m. Fridays through Sundays. Trains will arrive every four to eight minutes at each of the seven stations.

The Las Vegas Monorail will open up with the usual safety requirements. Face masks to be worn at all times throughout the system, social distancing will be required when possible, and hand sanitizer will be available at at every station. Additionally, there will be cleaning staff on trains and platforms even while trains are running.

Touchless ticketing will be available as well. Customers can purchase and download tickets to their mobile wallets. Ticket options include single ride tickets and several unlimited ride pass options.

The Monorail’s seven stops include:

  • MGM Grand
  • Bally’s / Paris Las Vegas
  • Flamingo / Caesars Palace
  • Harrah’s / The LINQ
  • Las Vegas Convention Center
  • Westgate / Las Vegas Convention Center
  • SAHARA Las Vegas

  1. I always enjoy riding the Monorail. On trips to LV I’ve had a rental car, taken cabs, Uber, and ridden the Monorail as well, all on the same visit.
    Hey, going from the Sahara to MGM takes about 15 minutes. That’s as fast as you can get there.
    Too bad they never extended it from the airport and then to downtown. I heard the cab companies lobbied against it.

  2. That monorail is the most useless thing in Las Vegas. Extend it to the airport, then talk to me about it. Also, bring back the damn SDX! The Deuce is just that….A DEUCE!
