I hope this isn't too far off topic...

Could someone give me a rough figure for how much a taxi ride would cost from Las Vegas LAS airport to the MGM casino?

I found this interesting article about possible Taxi driver scams on the route I'm asking about. I'll add it here in case anyone wants to give it a read.

    Expect to pay a lot more for the trip from the airport to the hotel than you will later from the hotel to the airport. It's called "long hauling" and there seems to be no way to prevent it so sit back and enjoy your scenic tour. Jan 12 '15 at 11:05
  • @KateGregory yeah I've read they take you the long way from the airport but the short way to the airport.

    I heard that you should tell them "no tunnel" so that they don't take you the long way, which always involves going through some prominent tunnel.

    @KateGregory Excellent search term you mentioned: "long-hauling". Here's an article that says it's not always robbery (but usually is). "No tunnel" ought to work. Jan 12 '15 at 15:11

$17 plus tip according to http://www.taxifarefinder.com/

But it's only a couple miles, you could walk in 30-40 minutes if you're price-sensitive!

  • Not so much price-sensitive, as lazy as sin. Cheers for John

    From LAS it takes about 20 minutes on the bus to get to the MGM. The return trip only takes about 10 minutes. I think the bus costs $6.
