If you are planning on making a trip to Vegas in the near future and not renting a car then think about contacting me via PM.  I am offering a ride service to and from the airport for people.  I can transport 3 people maximum at a time.

When you fly into Vegas you have 3 options to get from the airport to your hotel.  Taxi in which you will have to wait in the taxi line and pay at least $20-25 to get to the hotel.  Shuttle van service which costs around $12 per person and the van doesn't leave until it's full.  Then you have to ride around dropping everyone else off and you might be the last one to get dropped off.  Last option is taking the city bus service which is cheap but you will have to wait outside for the bus sometimes up to 30 minutes and the ride will take almost an hour to get to the Strip and you will have to transfer too.

I am offering a service where you call me when you're ready to be picked up and I will take up to three of you for only $15 to any Strip hotel or $20 to any downtown hotel.  Other hotels vary in price.  Best deal you'll find for cheap and quick service, I promise. 

Contact me via PM if you're interested.

I do this on the side to make a little extra money.  The jokes do not bother me.  There will always be someone that has to make snide remarks without provocation.

No, I will not stand with a sign with your name on it.  You're going to pay at least $20 if you take a taxi and for that you get to wait outside in the taxi Q which is always full of people and you get no special treatment.  Plus you have to ride in a dirty taxi.

So which choice is better?

Just a clean, normal Toyota Camry.  2009.  Nothing fancy.  If you want a limo you have to pay for a limo.

Let's see. $15 for you to take me to the Flamingo or $18 for a taxi that I know will be outside when I walk out and know the accelerator won't stick because it's not a foreign piece of garbage.

Taxi it is!

Do you actually profit off of these services?  (significant)

HandsDown I think you're puffing on the taxi prices,I could get from the airport to the Sahara by off the strip for about $15 but its true if its Fri there is much more traffic/more exspence.Bus is irregular but vans aren't that bad. I think you're a comfortable alternative slightly cheaper.

Not trying to knock a guys hustle in life...more power to you but...

"Shuttle van service which costs around $12 per person and the van doesn't leave until it's full."

Ive been there twice this year and the shuttle is $6 or $6.50, not $12. Also, Ive taken the shuttle a handful of times and it usually fills up within 3-5 mins. Never sat more than that.

I guess for 3 people taking your car is about the same price, and yes you get to ride nicer, but for anyone going in solo or with another...shuttle is the way to go.

Good luck though
