What to Expect When You Ride The Monorail
Here’s everything you need to know about riding the Las Vegas Monorail
The Las Vegas Monorail is an easy and convenient way to get around the Las Vegas Strip. Without having to worry about traffic, parking, or having a designated driver, you’ll be ready to hit the town without compromising on a good time. The Monorail is also the top choice for convention attendees, for easily getting from one of the many convention centers around Las Vegas back to their hotels and out to restaurants & entertainment options while they are here in town.
However, with the recent pandemic and lifestyle changes we’ve all experienced, you may be wondering what you can expect while riding the Monorail. Will it be different than before? Are there new requirements or guidelines?
Hours and Ticketing
The Las Vegas Monorail re-opened to the public on Thursday, May 27th at 7:00 a.m. and welcomes riders back after more than a year! As far as purchasing tickets, riders will have access to everything they did before, including ticketing kiosks, online purchases and paperless ticketing on your smartphone. You’ll be able to purchase passes for a single ride, a 24-hour period or up to a 7-day pass, depending on your needs.
Operating hours will also remain the same as before the COVID-19 closure. Whether you’re in Las Vegas for a vacation, convention, or a last-minute trip with your friends, we’ve got you covered with trains arriving every four to eight minutes starting at 7:00 a.m. every day. Check our operating hours and ticketing options or contact our team with any questions.

Tips and Recommendations for Las Vegas Visitors
When you’re ready to visit Las Vegas again, you can expect there will be some changes as Las Vegas transitions from reduced capacity to fully reopening to visitors. Here are some tips to keep in mind to make your visit to Vegas as smooth and safe as possible.
