Locals can purchase Single-Ride Tickets for $1 at the Sahara Monorail Station
On Dec. 6, 2009, the more than 25,000 runners won’t be the only ones running early on the Las Vegas Strip. The Las Vegas Monorail will open early on Dec. 6, to help move visitors and spectators along Las Vegas Boulevard South, which will be closed that morning to accommodate the start of the race.
Local marathon participants and spectators can purchase a single-ride ticket for $1 with a valid Nevada ID (limit two tickets per Nevada ID) at the Sahara Monorail Station customer service booth. The booth will be open from 4 a.m. to 7 a.m.
