You don’t have to be behind the wheel of a Formula One car to move around Las Vegas during Grand Prix weekend. 

Ride the Las Vegas Monorail for easy access to F1 viewing zones and Strip resorts. With seven stations along its 3.9-mile elevated system, you’ll reduce travel time and skip traffic on the Strip. You can conveniently, and quickly, make your way up and down the Strip in comfort and at speeds of up to 50 mph. 

The monorail will be operational throughout the entire weekend, running continuously from 7 a.m., Tuesday, Nov. 14, through 3 a.m. Monday, Nov. 20.  

Plan ahead: That’s the ticket 

Due to the high volume of visitors and traffic, it’s suggested to save time and money by purchasing your tickets in advance online. Once you do, you can download them directly to your phone, plus you can take advantage of special discounts specifically for Las Vegas Grand Prix weekend.  

For local Nevadans who want to take advantage of the state resident discount, it’s recommended that tickets be purchased in person and in advance, as resident tickets are not available electronically. Tickets can be purchased at customer service booths at every station except Boingo Station at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Note: During race weekend, customer service hours are 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Thursday – Sunday.

Tips for a smooth ride 

As you prepare for the incredible F1 Las Vegas race, here are a few suggestions to help with your monorail experience! If you’re parking somewhere to ride the monorail to the race, it’s suggested that you arrive at the station at least an hour in advance to account for lines and potential delays. Additionally, keep in mind that every rider, including you, is trying to get somewhere. Please be courteous to other passengers and the staff and avoid crowding an already full train. Don’t hold train doors open as this will cause system alarms, immediately halting all trains until the alarm is cleared. And avoid bringing open containers that could spill or leak during the ride.

Accelerate your Vegas experience

All monorail ticket holders have access to fantastic discounts on shows, attractions, restaurants, and more with the discounted ticket options offered on the Las Vegas Monorail website. This is an easy way to enhance your Las Vegas grand Prix Experience to save time and money by buying and downloading tickets in advance directly on your mobile phone.
