The taxi cab industry in Las Vegas is very tightly regulated by the Nevada Taxi Cab Authority. You can catch a cab outside the baggage claim area at the airport...or at the main entrance of any hotel. You'll see a line, but it usually moves very fast. A little known fact is that Las Vegas cabs are prohibited by law from stopping for a customer on the street ...even if the cab is empty! Taxis may only pick up at hotels and established pickup points.
MaCarran Airport has a central location for Las Vegas car rental companies. When you get to the baggage claim area, look for signs leading you to the shuttle that will take you to the Rent-a-Car-Center. The shuttles provide free 24-hour service to all rental car customers. The Blue and White McCarran Rent-A-Car Center shuttle buses depart approximately every 5 minutes for the 3 mile trip to the center.
Walking around in Vegas:
Vegas blocks are enormous. Just getting from your room to the front lobby can take 15mins!! Plan extra time for anything transportation related. Book your shuttle for 2hrs ahead of your flight leaving to allow enough time for all the inevitable delays.
