Monorail

I bought a 3-day pass for the Vegas monorail.  On appearances, its a good system.  The cars are clean and its far from being overcrowded, but it does have issues.

First, it doesn’t stop at the airport (unlike the MARTA system in Atlanta).

Second, the terminals are too out-of-way .  To take the monorail from the Paris up the the Convention Center I had to walk through the Paris, through Ballys to the very back of Ballys where the pool and tennis courts were located.  It gave me the feeling that the hotels only reluctantly want to acknowledge that there even is monorail.  I’m sure this has more to do with the hotels being built before the monorail, but it certainly doesn’t encourage ridership.
