Hi, from personal experience I recommend the CAT bus. $5 for a 24 hour pass and you can run up and down the strip - yes they can get busy but that is half the fun. Trolley bus & monorail do not go to Freemont, so only other option is a cab. Each to their own but we love the bus and it is such great value. 301 & 302 run the entire length of the strip day and night - 302 is the express so does not make nearly as many stops. Hope this helps.

Learned the hard way.... cabs do NOT take the direct route.. either to or from fremont st. From Strip to Fremont St & Back both times cost over 10.00 (plus tip). and involved a lot of excessive driving. Definitely did not take the most direct route. Oh well... they want a piece of the $$ too I suppose

When we used taxi to/from Fremont we went straight up the strip on the way there and via the freeway on the way back. When we were dropped off the reason for the detour on the return was pretty obvious. The Strip was total gridlock. This was at about 10pm. The Strip route would have been more direct but the fare would almost certainly have been higher.

It's been awhile since I've been to Vegas, but am headed there in June. Do you just purchase a $5 pass when you get on the bus? That sounds great to me!

we stayed at NYNY last week and had purchased the 10-ride pass for the monorail for $20 that we shared...took about 15 minutes to take Monorail all the way sahara, 5-10 minute walk thru the hotel and then caught the 301 outside to take us to freemont st which took about another 10 minutes... people on the bus who came from Monte Carlo said they had been on the bus for over an hour and a half ( and the bus was packed)... we were going to take the bus back from Freemont but at the lasted minute grabbed cab by the bus stop and paid $8 for ride back to sahara.... it saved us alot of time, we got a good view of the Wynn via the Monorail and most importantly felt safe
