Airport Tram Red LineTerminal 3 to D gates / D gates to Terminal 3

Airport Shuttle Bus — Outside the Secure Area

The airport shuttle bus runs every 15-30 minutes and transports passengers between terminals. Buses operate outside of the secure area, so passengers need to re-clear security on arrival at the connecting terminal.

Final Thoughts

As LAS is one of the largest U.S. airports, some prior planning may be in order to ensure arrival at the correct terminal as they are not interconnected outside of the secure area.

The airport tram is only accessible once passengers have cleared security and is a convenient mode of transport for passengers connecting to other flights where it’s not necessary to re-claim checked luggage.

The airport is just a few miles from the start of the Las Vegas Strip, so visitors can stay in the famous resorts and hotels without worrying about a long journey back to the airport.
