You’ve hopped off the plane at McCarran International Airport and you’re
ready for a fun-filled weekend in Las Vegas. You may be overwhelmed with the
plethora of transportation options that are being thrown at you as you walk
through baggage claim. What most people don’t know is that hotel shuttles are
an economically friendly method of transportation when looking for an
inexpensive way to get to your hotel from the airport if you aren’t in a hurry.
How Shuttles Work
Shuttles are a shared method of transportation that make
multiple stops at major casino resorts both on and off the Las Vegas Strip including
the Downtown area. Because this method of transportation is shared, the transfer
to your final destination may take longer than any alternative method of transportation.
This also allows for a much cheaper fare for the price savvy individual looking
to save a little cash for other activities such as gambling, show tickets or
dinner reservations. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the magnificent skyline that
is the Las Vegas Strip while en route to your final destination.
Where Shuttles Are Located at McCarran International Airport
Shuttle pickup is conveniently located at both Terminal 1
and Terminal 3 at McCarran International Airport. In Terminal 1, Group shuttles
are available on the west side of baggage claim, outside door exits 7
– 13. At Terminal 3, shuttles are conveniently located outside
on Level Zero on the west end of the building to serve domestic
travelers and on the east side of the building to accommodate
international travelers. Shuttle tickets can be purchased both on-site or
in advance by calling 702-688-7351. There are airport attendants at each
shuttle pickup to assist passengers with loading luggage as well as boarding
and de-boarding the motor coach.
If you’re looking for a cost-effective method of
transportation and you are not in a hurry, a shuttle service is the way to go.
With convenient pickup locations at each terminal and curbside airport
personnel to assist with your needs, this is a great option for those looking
to take the scenic route from the airport to their hotel. If you’re looking for
transportation that is much quicker and have a little flexibility in your
budget, chauffeured services are available within an arm’s reach at McCarran
International Airport. Simply click

Summer is over and regular routines are setting in, but that
doesn’t mean that the party has to stop in Las Vegas. Fall in Sin City is
booming with music festivals, foodie events and conventions. Below we explore
our top picks when it comes to the hottest events in Southern Nevada taking

Booking the right vehicle that will accommodate you and your
groups’ needs can be a daunting task. With the variety of vehicles offered in a
large-size fleet like ODS’, you want to make sure the vehicle that you select
can not only fit your entire party, but has all the necessities like luggage
space and audio/visual capabilities. In this blog post, we explain three
distinct differentiators between mini coaches vs. limousine coaches.
Number of People Accommodated
When it comes to booking the right vehicle for you and your
group, you first and foremost want to make sure there is enough seating on
board for everyone. While a limousine style Mercedes Benz Sprinter sounds
appealing, it can only accommodate about half of the people compared to an
executive minibus. An executive minibus is a much more economically friendly
option for corporate groups, while a limousine Sprinter might be the best
choice for a girl’s night out. ODS offers solutions for large groups with both
van, minibus and limousine style options.
The type of vehicle that you select will depend upon the
occasion. For example, you are most likely not going to show up to a board
meeting in a limousine style Sprinter complete with dome/accent lighting and a
champagne basin. On the flip side, you are most likely not going to pick your
girlfriends up for a bachelorette party in a minibus with individual,
traditional style leather back seating. Luckily, ODS has the perfect vehicle to
accommodate any special occasion.
Limousines and Luggage
Often times minibuses are able to accommodate much more
luggage than a limousine due to having an additional luggage compartment or
storage area. When traveling with large groups, a minibus is a much more
practical option due to the fact that it has much more cabin space. Because of
the buildout of limousines, it is much harder to find places to accommodate
additional luggage. ODS services both limos and minibuses to and from McCarran International Airport.
When deciding upon what vehicle to book for you and your
group, keep in mind that the number of people in your party, the occasion and
the amount of luggage that you have should greatly impact your decision. ODS
specializes in large group and event transportation! Click here to contact us today and
our group transportation team will assist you in selecting the right vehicle
that will best accommodate your needs.

Convention season in Las Vegas is bustling with large
corporate groups. Those large groups are often seeking hotel accommodations,
meeting space and extra curricular team building activities far in advanced.
One thing that should be considered while planning your corporate trip is group
transportation. Below we explore the benefits of group transportation for you
and your team of professionals during your business trip.
Stay On Schedule
Giving large groups the freedom to arrive at a specific
location on their own merit is almost impossible. Most individuals won’t plan
ahead, and will rely on ride sharing or taxicabs to get them from point A to
point B. Convention season is extremely busy in Las Vegas, resulting in long
taxi lines and even longer waits and surge charges when using ride sharing apps
such as Uber. Hiring a professional shuttle service will offer a safe and
guaranteed ride, and will also allow for your team to arrive and depart in
unison. Hey, punctuality is key while traveling on business, right?!
Work With a Team That Understands Groups
When booking group transportation with ODS Chauffeured
Transportation, you will work directly with a group coordinator who specializes
in moving large amounts of people. The group coordinator will map out your trip
for you, present various options for fleet vehicles based on your budget, and
