Las Vegas Monorail Will Remain Open on New Year’s Eve When The Strip is Closed to Vehicle Traffic

While Sin City is hosting several hundred thousand revelers on New Year’s Eve, the Las Vegas Monorail will continue to transport people from one end of the Strip to the other, even when Las Vegas Blvd. closes to vehicles and buses. Visitors looking to get to the city’s hottest spots safely, quickly and efficiently can use the Monorail to travel the length of the Strip in just 15 minutes.

“Visitors who use the Monorail can spend less time traveling and more time celebrating, and best of all – we’ll do the driving for you,” said Ingrid Reisman, vice president of corporate communications for the Las Vegas Monorail.

With trains arriving every few minutes, riders can glide above the crowds from one party to the next and easily connect to Las Vegas’ world-famous restaurants, clubs, shows, shops, hotels and casinos. As the rooftop fireworks displays are commencing the start of a new year, the Las Vegas Monorail will continue to offer reliable, non-stop service until 3 a.m.


The Las Vegas Monorail is an easy and convenient connection to the Las Vegas Strip, linking riders to the city’s world-class restaurants, shows, shops, clubs, hotels and casinos. Monorail riders can travel the famous Las Vegas Strip in 15 minutes or less in a safe, comfortable and clean environment – without the hassles of traffic or wasted time. Currently, the privately-funded Monorail system has seven stations: MGM Grand; Horseshoe/Paris Station; Flamingo/Caesars Palace; Harrah’s/Imperial Palace; Las Vegas Convention Center; Las Vegas Hilton; and the Sahara. As one of the nation’s most environmentally-friendly public transportation systems, the Monorail’s electric trains are zero emission vehicles and meet more than 99 percent of their stops on time.  For more information on the Las Vegas Monorail or where to purchase tickets, call 866-4-MONORAIL (866-466-6672); visit; or pick up a Monorail Magazine, available at all Monorail stations and station hotels.
