Free Transportation in Las Vegas

Some casinos offer free shuttles and trams between sister properties. Mostly the casinos off the beaten path of the Strip provide this complimentary service to visitors. They supply these transportation services to get more foot traffic into their casino. More foot traffic leads to more money being spent. Whatever their reasons may be, there is no reason why you can’t take them up on their generosity. It’ll save you on cab fare.
