Las Vegas Monorail to LAS McCarran Airport? Not ... yet ... but.... maybe....

The Las Vegas Monorail project can be considered a success or a great failure depending on your perspective.   Although ridership has been under the projected levels and the system is struggling under a large debt load, millions have enjoyed the cheap, fast transportation up and down the Las Vegas Strip and to the Las Vegas Convention Center.

After about two years of negotiations and planning, the system was prepared to enter bankruptcy in an effort to reduce current debt payments which in turn was to enable the Monorail to enter "monorail phase II", an extension of the system to McCarran International Airport.   However a November judicial decision has put the kabosh on that plan, the judge suggesting that implementation of the plan would simply push failure of the system out to a maximum of 2019 after which the hose of cards would collapse.

Monorail?
The Venetian didn't want any stop near its casino. Indeed, the Venetian insists that even those who ride the airport shuttle get dropped at the doorway referred to as "Siberia". The Venetian expects its customers to arrive by limousine.

As with many urban monorails, the talk of airport connections is usually just that: talk!

My husband and I booked a last minute holiday on a Shearing's coach to the Savoy Hotel. We requested a walk in shower and the reception rang to offer us either a choice of a room on the 4th floor or a shower over the bath on the second floor. Taxi Bournemouth to London
