Las Vegas Convention Center Monorail Transportation
The Las Vegas Monorail is one of the best transportation options for convention attendees at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Offering reliable and fast transportation along the Strip, the Monorail directly connects travelers to numerous resort hotels along the Strip. The Monorail is a fully-electric tram that transports passengers from one end of the Strip to another in just a few minutes. With monorail trains arriving every few minutes at each of the seven stations, you can easily arrive at your destination faster than most rideshare or taxi transportation options.
The Las Vegas Monorail is open from 7 a.m. to midnight on Mondays, 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. Tuesday through Thursday, and 7 a.m. to 3 a.m. Friday through Sunday.
There are seven Monorail stations along the Las Vegas Strip:
- SAHARA Las Vegas Monorail Station
- Westgate Las Vegas Monorail Station
- Las Vegas Convention Center Monorail Station
- Harrah’s & The LINQ Monorail Station
- Flamingo & Caesars Palace Monorail Station

- MGM Grand Monorail Station
Convention Center LOOP
The Las Vegas Convention Center now offers unique free on-campus transportation through the Las Vegas Convention Center Loop (LVCC Loop), connecting the new West Hall to the existing campus (Central/North/South Halls). Rather than the average walk time of 25 minutes between halls, the free LVCC Loop connects you in approximately two minutes.
The LVCC Loop is two one-way tunnels built under the 200-acre Las Vegas Convention Center, roughly ⅘ of a mile in length, that are built for Tesla EVs to transport you from one area to another at speeds up to 35 mph.
There are three LVCC Loop stations:
- South Station (Located above ground – adjacent to the South Hall of the LVCC)
- Central Station (Located below ground near Central Hall Main Entrance, accessible via elevator or escalator)
- West Station (Located above ground — adjacent to the West Hall of the LVCC)
