LAS VEGAS -- As several hundred thousand revelers ring in 2011 Lss Vegas style, the Las Vegas Monorail will be moving partygoers along the world-famous Strip while the road is closed to vehicles and buses on New Year's Eve.
"Visitors can use the Monorail to travel to and from their hotel, their show or dinner reservations, or to their favorite hot spots without worrying about getting stuck when the Strip closes to vehicles," said Ingrid Reisman, vice president of corporate communications for the Las Vegas Monorail Company. "We're open to help revelers spend more time celebrating the best party in America, and less time traveling."
Tickets are $5 for a single ride; $12 Unlimited Ride Day Pass; and a $28 Unlimited Ride Three-Day Pass. As the night culminates in a rooftop fireworks display, the Las Vegas Monorail will continue to offer nonstop service until 3 a.m.
The Las Vegas Monorail links riders to the city's restaurants, shows, shops, clubs, hotels and casinos. Currently, the privately-funded Monorail system has seven stations: MGM Grand; Bally's/Paris Las Vegas; 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.
