Opening May 27th, 2021
The Las Vegas Monorail is looking forward to welcoming back our guests to Las Vegas and aboard the Monorail system this summer! May 27th is fast approaching and we wanted to provide an update on some changes we’ve made while you’ve been away.
Since opening in 2004, the Monorail has carried approximately 90 million riders to their destinations throughout the resort corridor. Our dedication to both enhancing customers’ Las Vegas experience and ensuring the health and safety of all our riders and team members remain our top priorities. During our closure, our team has been working diligently to ensure the system is ready to serve our customers while observing the latest public health guidance.
When you return, you will find we have made some modifications to help keep you safe. Our guidelines and safety measures have been developed in accordance with Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) guidelines, local public health information and state and local government guidelines, policy changes and mandates. We’ve provided some links at the bottom for your information. Additionally, we reviewed and considered protocols being undertaken by connected and nearby resorts and related facilities to ensure as much continuity and consistency of the customer experience as possible for you.
