The Monorail is a 6.3 km (3.9-mi) elevated train system on the Las Vegas Strip. It connects major hotels and attractions along the Strip. It currently begins at the MGM Grand Hotel near the south end of the Las Vegas Strip and ends at the Sahara Hotel at the north end of the Strip. The Monorail takes you from one end to the other, with seven stops in total, in just 15 minutes.

The Monorail features the first fully-automated control network system for driverless operation.

It runs 7 days a week from 7am - 2am Monday through Thursday and until 3am. Friday through Sunday. Trains arrive every 5-6 minutes. The Monorail system is completely ADA compliant.

It is owned and operated by the Las Vegas Monorail Company. It is privately-funded, utilizing no public funds to build or operate the system.

Las Vegas Deuce double-decker bus
Deuce Bus, the double-decker bus line serving Las Vegas, Nevada (USA). 

The Deuce is the bus line that connects Downtown Las Vegas and the Las Vegas Strip. It runs approximately every 15 minutes from the Fremont Street Experience to Mandalay Bay on the Las Vegas Strip. It operates 24 hours a day, every day. The second deck makes the ride super-scenic. The Deuce is a good way to make short trips since there are stops at nearly every Strip hotel.

Las Vegas Strip & Downtown Express
Las Vegas Strip & Downtown Express (formerly ACE Gold Line) in Las Vegas, Nevada (USA).

The Strip & Downtown Express connects Downtown Las Vegas, the Las Vegas Convention Center, and the Las Vegas Strip. The limited-stop service makes it ideal for quickly traveling the Las Vegas Strip.

The Strip & Downtown Express operates from 9 a.m. to 12:30 a.m., everyday. The service starts earlier on days with major conventions at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Both the Deuce and the Strip & Downtown Express, as well as several other routes, are operated by the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC). In 2011, RTC Transit carried nearly 58 million passengers in the greater Las Vegas Valley. The McCarran International Airport is served by RTC buses. They stop at Terminal 1 outside the Zero Level.

Free shuttles operate on the Las Vegas Strip to and from some resorts (such as Rio Hotel, Paris Las Vegas, The Riviera, Trump Las Vegas, and more), the Fashion Show Mall, or The Forum Shops.
