The new monorail in Las Vegas will be open in time for the NAB2004 convention, based on comments by its developers. They expect the $650 million transit system along the Las Vegas Strip to begin service by March 1 and be completed $23 million under budget.
Officials said the four-mile monorail would be both an effective transit system and a unique attraction. It will link eight resorts and nine convention facilities, including the Las Vegas Convention Center. It will connect the MGM Grand and Sahara hotel-casinos on a route running east of and parallel to the Las Vegas Strip. Eventually it may connect downtown Las Vegas and McCarran International Airport.
A one-way trip will be $3, and round-trip fare will cost $5.50. The system will run from 6 a.m. to 2 a.m. Info: www.lvmonorail.com.
