I pose this question because once I understand this, I can try to predict the taxi route: I'd like to make a stop between the airport and the hotel, but need to understand the starting point.

  • Unless the stop is on Airport grounds, it won't make that much difference. The main cab stand is on the south east side of the Arrivals hall, between the terminal and parking garage.

    For future reference, when asking questions about a specific airport, please use the airport's tag which is its three-letter IATA code (LAS here). Jul 24, 2017 at 22:57
  • The taxi driver is going to take the route that he/she feels is best based on time of day, traffic, destination, etc. Any route you plot will be pure speculation, irregardless of the taxi stand's location at the airport.

    Let's face it, at LAS 90% of the time the taxi is going to long haul you through the tunnel unless you tell them otherwise. Jul 25, 2017 at 0:13

    @GayotFow Straight up the Strip is going to be slower (although also more scenic for new visitors). Going up Koval or Paradise is generally the fastest and cheapest way. Getting tunneled probably adds ~$5 to the fare. Going up the Strip on a busy weekend night could easily add quite a lot more. Jul 25, 2017 at 18:23

You can see an interactive map of the airport at https://www.mccarran.com/Fly/MyJourneyMap.aspx#. If you click "Ground Transportation" on the left side, and then "Taxis", you will see yellow icons showing the locations of taxi pickup. There is one taxi stand at Terminal 1 and two at Terminal 3, so you will need to check which terminal your flight arrives at.
