We have compiled some useful information to assist with getting to the Encore Hotel.


VIA SHUTTLE SERVICES: There are shuttle services that operate between Airport and Strip hotels, and they cost a lot less than cabs. And they take the same, standard route- they don’t cheat anyone. Cabs are a waste of money if you’re just going to the Strip.

VIA PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION:
Here’s a novel thought. The public bus system runs to McCarran Airport. If you only have one suitcase, you can take the bus. Encore is right on Strip, near Fashion Show Mall. Fare used to be about 2 dollars.

Limousines

If you are looking for a luxury Las Vegas experience, then walk-up limousine service may be the best option for you. Sedans, stretch limousines, and SUVs are available to whisk you away to your destination in comfort and style.

If you or your hotel/resort made arrangements for limousine service in advance, your driver will meet you in baggage claim, help you get your bags, and take you to your vehicle.

Limousines are available on the west side of baggage claim, outside door exits 7 – 13. Airport personnel are available to help queue the lines and provide assistance as needed.


Terminal 3

At Terminal 3, shuttles and limousines are conveniently located outside on Level Zero on the west end of the building to serve domestic travelers and on the east side of the building to accommodate international travelers. Quick exit lanes will allow traffic to leave the airport quickly and airport personnel are available to assist as needed.


Ride Share

Passengers now have another option for getting to and from the airport. Lyft and Uber are currently authorized to provide ride sharing services at the airport. Simply arrange for a ride using the app on your smart phone or mobile device.

Customers are allowed to be dropped off at the airport’s departures curbs at both Terminal 1 and Terminal 3. Designated Ride Share passenger pick up locations are listed below.

VIA TAXI: The Nevada taxi authority posts a chart with some approximations: http://taxi.state.nv.us/FaresFees.htm Estimate from McCarran Airport to the Encore is $17. If your cabbie exits the Airport without asking if you want to go the long-way (normally called the quickest way-not true), goes thru a tunnel and ends-up on the Interstate, you are being cheated…long hauled. That cabbie is making a loop around the airport which runs-up the meter at least $10 beyond what it would be if they had taken the direct route (city streets). So the simple solution is to kindly insist your driver use Paradise Road to get to your Hotel. Even if you are staying downtown, Paradise road is normally a cheaper route. Unless you arrive during rush hour 3pm to 6pm PST, always insist on the cabbie using Paradise Rd. no matter what. The rule is…it is NEVER cheaper to use the Highway leaving McCarran Airport!


McCarran Rent-A-Car Center

ADVISORY: Shuttle bus service between McCarran International Airport and the McCarran Rent-A-Car Center has been affected by a sizable roadwork improvement project that is occurring south of the Airport Connector Tunnel. Lane closures and other construction-related limits to traffic flow routinely delay shuttle bus movement, particularly during evening hours. We advise rental car customers to allow extra time for their commute when returning to the airport after they’ve dropped off a rental vehicle. Likewise, please know that pick-up schedules at McCarran may be affected due to buses moving through the construction area. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this work period.



The McCarran Rent-A-Car Center is located at 7135 Gilespie Street, just three miles from the airport with easy freeway access to Interstates 15 and 215 and the Las Vegas Strip. The Center is open 24 hours and features state-of-the art customer service facilities.




Rental Car Pick Up from Terminal 1

Arriving car rental customers will be transported to their vehicles by dedicated blue-and-white McCarran Rent-A-Car Center shuttles for the three-mile trip to the Center and the car rental company of your choice.

From Baggage Claim, follow signs to Ground Transportation on Level 1. Proceed to the Rental Car Shuttle located at the center median outside doors 10 and 11.


Rental Car Pick up from Terminal 3

Blue and white McCarran Rent-A-Car Center shuttle buses depart approximately every five minutes for the three-mile trip to the Center and the car rental company of your choice.

Follow signs to Ground Transportation from Baggage Claim on Level Zero. Proceed to the Rental Car Shuttle located outside West doors 51-54 and East doors 55-58.


Rental Car Return

Upon arrival at the McCarran Rent-A-Car Center, follow the signs to the Rental Car Return entrance off of Gilespie St. Continue following the overhead signs to the appropriate car rental company. After returning your vehicle, proceed through the lobby and out the main entrance to the shuttles.
