Budget airlines such as JetBlue, Southwest and US Airways can also be found here. Once you have arrived, you can reach your end destination by either taking the taxi, bus or shuttle.

Free airport shuttle services is also provided by certain hotels, so be sure to check if the hotel you are staying at offers such services.

The main bus service providers are GotoBus, Greyhound, LuxBus and Megabus. Depending on the specific route and quality of service, prices will vary, so be sure to choose carefully.

By Car - If you want to get to Las Vegas by car from some other parts of the US, you will have to take the Interstate 15 from South California. This is about a 300 mile route across the desert. Though the drive is quite long, you will find many attractions to enliven the journey. The route is also serviced by many gas stations and frequently patrolled by police cars, so you will not have any cause for worry. There are also many towns along the way that you can make pit stops at. Those who choose to drive to Las Vegas are highly encouraged to do so during off-peak hours and preferably during weekdays as otherwise there is highly likely to be congestion.
