The Las Vegas Monorail Company announces a new partnership with rideshare provider Lyft to allow easy and economical transport from the Strip to other destinations around the Las Vegas valley. With the Lyft partnership, anyone who purchases a full-price, unlimited-ride pass on the Monorail will receive $5 off Lyft rides issued through a special code.
The Monorail/Lyft partnership allows visitors to enjoy unlimited access to all seven stations along the Monorail’s 3.9-mile route, which includes stations at MGM Grand; Bally’s/Paris Las Vegas; Flamingo/Caesars Palace; Harrah’s/The LINQ; Las Vegas Convention Center; Westgate Resort & Casino and SLS Las Vegas. Best of all, Downtown Las Vegas, which recently debuted its free Downtown Loop shuttle service, is just a quick ride from the Monorail’s northernmost station at SLS Las Vegas, while McCarran International Airport is a short ride from the system’s southernmost station at MGM Grand.
“What we do really well is carry our customers to the many resorts and attractions near our seven-station system along the Las Vegas Strip,” said Ingrid Reisman, vice president and chief marketing officer, Las Vegas Monorail. “This partnership with Lyft bridges the transportation gap and allows our customers to extend their journeys easily and economically to the airport, Downtown and beyond.”
“Lyft is excited to partner with the Las Vegas Monorail to provide a connection service for users who want to explore beyond the Rail’s route,” said Yacob Girma, Lyft Las Vegas General Manager. “We are always looking for ways to provide Las Vegas residents with a reliable and affordable transportation option, and our partnership with the Monorail helps us do that.”
