Getting Around Las Vegas
To traverse the Strip or go downtown, board the double-decker Deuce bus. It’s wheelchair accessible and has rates for those 60 and over. (You must get your reduced-fare transit ID card at the Bonneville Transit Center.) The free Downtown Loop bus goes to the Fremont Street Experience, the Arts District, Symphony Park, Pawn Plaza and outlet stores.
Taxis sit outside hotels; those outfitted for wheelchairs can be ordered by phone. Ride-hailing vehicles now far outnumber cabs. It’s unusual to wait more than five minutes for an Uber or Lyft in tourist areas. They typically cost half what a taxi would, and sometimes even less.
Vegas rolls out the welcome mat for those using walkers or wheelchairs. The most heavily traveled part of the four-mile Strip has wide sidewalks and elevators to pedestrian bridges that cross Las Vegas Boulevard.
