Las Vegas: the Handbook

 

Las Vegas is an internationally renowned major resort city known primarily for gambling, shopping, fine dining, and nightlife and is the leading financial and cultural center for Southern Nevada.


The city bills itself as
The Entertainment Capital of the World, and is famous for its mega casino–hotels and associated entertainment. A growing retirement and family city, Las Vegas is the 29th-most populous city in the United States, with a population of 603,488 at the 2013 United States Census Estimates. The 2013 population of the Las Vegas metropolitan area was 2,027,828. The city is one of the top three leading destinations in the United States for conventions, business, and meetings. In addition, the city's metropolitan area has more AAA Five Diamond hotels than any other city in the world, and is a global leader in the hospitality industry. Today, Las Vegas is one of the top tourist destinations in the world.


Established in 1905, Las Vegas was incorporated as a city in 1911. At the close of the 20th century, Las Vegas was the most populous American city founded in that century (a similar distinction retained by Chicago in the 19th century). The city's tolerance for numerous forms of adult entertainment earned it the title of Sin City, and has made Las Vegas a popular setting for films, television programs, and music videos.


Las Vegas is generally used to describe not just the city itself, but areas beyond the city limits — especially the resort areas on and near the
Las Vegas Strip — and the Las Vegas Valley. The 4.2 mile (6.8 km) stretch of South Las Vegas Boulevard known as the Las Vegas Strip is in the unincorporated communities of Paradise, Winchester, and Enterprise, located in Clark County.

Buses


Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) operates scheduled routes throughout the Las Vegas Valley. Most buses operate between 5:00am and 1:30am, seven days a week. Strip buses run 24 hours.

The new SDX Strip & Downtown Express has limited stops along the strip and continues downtown.

The Deuce now runs between Mandalay Bay on the south and Palace Station on Sahara on the north. It no longer goes downtown. Use the SDX Express to get downtown.

Deuce & SDX fares: $6 for a 2-hour All Access Pass, $8 for a 24-hour All Access Pass, and $20 for a 3-day All Access Pass. A 30-day pass is also available for $65.

Ticket Now speeds up the boarding process by allowing passengers to purchase fares at Ticket Vending Machines (TVMs) located at transit stops serviced by the SDX Express, Deuce on the Strip, and MAX. Passengers pay their fare at the Ticket Vending Machine and board the vehicles at any open door upon the arrival of the transit vehicle. All fares must be purchased prior to boarding premium service routes and MAX. While passengers are encouraged to pay before boarding when using Deuce on the Strip, fareboxes are still available onboard the Deuce on the Strip vehicles. Passengers must maintain possession of proof of payment received upon purchase.

Taxicab Fares And Fees Explained....
Sixteen taxicab companies service the Las Vegas valley. When you enter a taxicab, the driver will start the taximeter (referred to as the "drop") and an initial charge of $3.30 will register. If a taxi ride originates at McCarran International Airport, an additional airport surcharge of $1.80 per trip is added to the taximeter. After the initial "drop", the taximeter will assess a fare of $2.40 per mile ($.20 for each 1/12th of a mile traveled). If the taximeter senses that the taxicab is moving less than 8-12 MPH, the taximeter will assess a charge of $.20 (twenty cents) every 24 seconds ($30.00 per hour waiting time). That is why the taximeter continues to accumulate charges even when the taxicab is not moving. Once the taximeter senses that the taxicab is moving at a speed greater than 8-12 mph, the fare calculates on the actual distance traveled.
