Vegas Monorail tops 10 million riders

Posted on October 30, 2005

The Las Vegas Monorail announced that it carried its 10 millionth passenger since opening the four-mile, driverless urban transit system along the east side of the Las Vegas Strip in 2004.

“It’s an exciting moment for the Las Vegas Monorail,” said Curtis Myles, president of the Las Vegas Monorail. “We look forward to continuing to provide this quick, unique and convenient transportation alternative for Las Vegas convention attendees, tourists and locals alike.”

The monorail connects eight major resorts, linking more than 25,000 hotel rooms and about 4.4 million square feet of meeting and convention space, including one of the world’s largest convention centers.
