Public Transport and Intercity Buses in Las Vegas

When you are in Las Vegas, it is not necessary to take expensive cabs to get around, as public transport is adequate and available. Whether you arrive by bus or by airplane, there is an equivalent bus ride you can take to (at least close to) your destination.
