LAS VEGAS MONORAIL OFFERS $1 FARES FOR LOCALS

 

LAS VEGAS (April 2016) – Nevada residents with valid identification can purchase $1 fares for the Las Vegas Monorail every day of the year. For locals looking for a cost-effective and environmentally friendly way to navigate the Strip, there is no better option than the Monorail. With the addition of the T-Mobile Arena to the Strip’s busy entertainment landscape, the Monorail provides easy transport along the Strip during high-attendance events, all the way from the SLS Las Vegas to MGM Grand.

 

“We established the $1 local fare to provide another way to conveniently and cost-effectively participate in events and activities that take place in the Strip corridor of our community,” explains Ingrid Reisman, senior vice president and chief marketing officer, Las Vegas Monorail. “With awareness of mass transit’s benefits increasing in Southern Nevada, we hope local residents will consider taking the Monorail when visiting the Strip.”

 

With a stop at the Las Vegas Convention Center, as well as a direct connection to eight properties with more than 26,000 hotel rooms, the Las Vegas Monorail is not only economical, but also the most convenient mode of Strip transport—especially when the city hosts major events. Riding the Monorail allows savvy locals to avoid the Strip’s traffic congestion, especially on weekends and in conjunction with major sports events, concerts and conventions.

 

The Las Vegas Monorail is Southern Nevada’s mass transit option that has been lowering travelers’ environmental footprint since opening in 2004. In 2015, its zero-emissions trains reduced toxic emissions by 29.6 tons of carbon monoxide (CO), volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and nitrous oxides (NOx) and eliminated more than 2.3 million vehicle miles. The system has carried more than 70 million riders since opening.

 

Locals’ discounted fares are available at the customer service ticketing offices & desks, whose locations and hours follow:

 

Ticket Offices:

  • Bally’s/Paris Station: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily

7 Ways to Celebrate Earth Day

Earth Day began in 1970 when John McConnell proposed that we set aside one day to promote peace and honor Earth. McConnell was later awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom and on April 22nd, 193 countries including the United States will celebrate Earth Day.

Get outside!

Take your dog for a walk, go to the park or take your morning exercise routine outside. Use Earth Day as an opportunity to appreciate and enjoy Mother Nature. There’s almost nothing better than fresh air and sunshine.

Visit a National Park

National Park Weeks runs through April 24th and all entrance fees for the 411 National Parks will be waived. If you’re in Las Vegas, we recommend Lake Mead, Death Valley, or Zion. You can also use the Nation Park Service’s Find Your Park tool to find one near you.

Find an alternative mode of transportation

In the United States, cars produce one-third of all air-pollution. On Earth Day try an alternative form of transportation; ride your bike, take public transportation or carpool.

Try eating vegetarian or vegan

Eat those fruits and vegetables your doctor always talks about and make an earth-friendly choice. Try a smoothie! They’re so delicious that you might forget that it’s good for you.

Support Green Businesses

Celebrate and thank those businesses who go the extra mile to promote and use environmentally friendly products and practices.

Invest in a reusable water bottle

Americans used 50 billion plastic water bottles last year—that’s a ton of waste that ends up in our nation’s landfills. Purchase a reusable water bottle and make a habit of bringing it with you. Not only will this practice save you money, it will also keep you healthy and hydrated.

Ride the Monorail!

The Las Vegas Monorail is completely electric and run zero emissions trains. In 2015, the Las Vegas Monorail aided in the annual removal of an estimated 2.3 million vehicle miles from Southern Nevada’s major roadways. That’s ten trips to the moon!

The Monorail is also responsible for reducing emissions by more than 29.5 tons of carbon monoxide (CO), volatile organic compounds (VOC) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) over the course of the year. That’s the equivalent of equivalent of 24 black rhinoceros!

To celebrate Earth Day, you can purchase one 2-Day Pass and get another for FREE! That’s right; we’re offering buy-one-get-one free 2-day passes. Just use code GREEN16 when purchasing your tickets online or at one of our etickting kiosks. It’s that easy!

You only have 48 hours to get your BOGO 2-Day passes, so hurry up and get those tickets!

7 Reasons to Get Excited for the T-Mobile Arena

Look out Las Vegas! There’s a new venue in town. On April 6th the city known for entertainment will welcome the T-Mobile Arena to the Las Vegas Strip.

It’s beautiful!

Renderings of the arena are impressive. It’s modern and artistic but welcoming.

Mother Nature is definitely a fan

Hey! They’re green too! The T-Mobile Arena was built for U.S. Green Building Council LEED Gold Certification.

It’s not just an arena

Guests will access the arena through a walking promenade called The Park. This walking promenade will complement the arena with restaurants, bars and retail shops. Water features and art installations will complete the space.

Talk about talent

The first few weeks of events are impressive. Kicking it off is Las Vegas Rock band The Killers followed by two nights of Guns N’ Roses. Wow, this city will rock! Harlem Globetrotters takes the court on April 19th. Next up will be country music legend George Strait, Janet Jackson and the Garth Brooks World Tour.

You can invite ALL your friends

Depending on the kind of event, the arena can seat anywhere up to 20,000. With such a large capacity it’s sure to be a party. The T-Mobile Arena recommends that guests take public transit to avoid traffic.

You can skip the parking

You can get there using the Las Vegas Monorail! Hop on at any one of our convenient stops and take the Monorail to the MGM Grand station. From there, it’s a short walk to the T-Mobile Arena entrance.
