Cost: About $80 one way or $120 round-trip (as of mid-2012)
Leave the driving to someone else and take a shuttle instead. It's a nicer way to go than the bus options you'll see at the end of this guide and best thought of as a less-stressful alternative to flying. Settle down in a 44-passenger shuttle coach with complimentary snacks and beverages, the latest movies to keep you entertained, reclining seats and on-board attendant service.
The shuttle makes one trip per day each way, picking up and drop off in Los Angeles downtown, Hollywood, LAX Airport, Santa Monica and Beverly Hills hotels and in Las Vegas at the Flamingo, California Hotel and Harrah's. It's primarily designed for city-to-city transport and isn't good for a one-day trip.
