Go to Allegiant Stadium? What you need to know about transport, parking
LAS VEGAS (KTNV) – The Allegiant Stadium is hosting its first full-scale concert this weekend, with many other big events to follow. But between all the tourists and the lack of carpooling, getting there will not be easy.
Stadium officials say the best way to get to Allegiant Stadium is by taking a short walk across the Hacienda Bridge from the Las Vegas Strip, near the Mandalay Bay hotel and casino. There are a lot of options to get to this point, but you need to plan ahead.
Carpools and taxis can be a popular option but also potentially expensive. Expect additional charges and higher fares due to increased demand and a shortage of drivers. Also, if you take a carpool or taxi, you will still have to travel a short distance, as drivers must drop passengers off in designated areas east and west of the stadium.
If you’re on the Strip, the Regional Transportation Commission Deuce Bus may be your best bet. It runs every 15 minutes, stopping at 57 points along the Strip, with Mandalay Bay being the closest stop to the stadium. Passes cost $ 5 to $ 8 for the day and can be purchased on board the bus.

If you decide to drive your own vehicle, you will have plenty of places to park. There are over 35,000 spaces within a one-mile radius of Allegiant Stadium, but parking passes must be purchased in advance using the SpotHero app. Be prepared to pay $ 50 to $ 100 to park.
If you are driving your own vehicle to the Allegiant Stadium, give yourself plenty of time and don’t bother bringing cash. Allegiant is a cashless stadium, which means you can only pay for parking and concessions with a credit or debit card or mobile payment.
