Vegas can be expensive, especially if staying in a tourist center like the Strip or Downtown. Some visitors have looked to save money by booking hotels away from the Strip that also offer free shuttle transportation to where the action is. We figured it would be helpful to build, and maintain, a list of Las Vegas hotels that offer a free shuttle to and from the Strip.
Guests staying on the Strip can also leverage these shuttles to escape the tourist corridor and check out properties off the beaten path! For gamblers, we recommend doing just that as slots are typically looser, and table game rules more favorable the further you get from touristy areas.
UPDATE: Many resorts have temporarily (at least we hope) paused their free shuttles to the Strip. While there are some operating, we recommend calling ahead to ensure that shuttle service is available.
Free Strip Shuttles From Downtown Las Vegas
California and Fremont: A free, 56 seat shuttle picks up at both Fremont Street properties and runs between downtown, Sam’s Town, and the Las Vegas Strip.
Downtown Grand: For hotel guests only, Downtown Grand’s free shuttle to the Strip runs daily from 10 am to 9 pm and drops off at Fashion Show Mall.
Downtown Loop: A free shuttle service that picks riders up at several stops along Fremont Street, the Downtown Loop offers a stop at STRAT on the north end of the Strip. If you need to get to STRAT, or just want to get closer to resorts on the Strip for free, this could be a good option.
Free Strip Shuttles From Off-Strip Casinos
Sam’s Town: The free shuttle runs a loop between the Strip, downtown, and Sam’s Town. Downtown, the Shuttle makes stops at both Cal and Fremont. Track the shuttle in real-time here.
Orleans and Gold Coast: Complimentary shuttle service runs in a loop between the two properties and the Las Vegas Strip.
Palace Station: A free shuttle runs from Palace Station to Fashion Show Mall on the Strip, and then onto T Mobile Arena before returning to Palace Station. The first shuttle leaves the casino at 10 am and runs through 11 pm. See the full schedule here.
Red Rock: Similar to Palace Station, Red Rock offers a free Strip shuttle which drops off at the Fashion Show Mall Daily. See the full schedule here.
Green Valley Ranch: Shuttles run from noon to 10:30 pm daily with free service to the Strip, dropping guests off at Mandalay Bay.

Discontinued Free Strip Shuttles
Rio: Unfortunately, Rio recently discontinued their shuttle service to the Strip.
South Point: Another casualty, South Point ended their offering of a paid shuttle to the Strip.
