Reader Poll Starting October 25, 2002


#1. Last weeks question regarding the new monorail being built in Las Vegas received outstanding support. This week question . . . What is a fair price to ride on the new monorail when it is completed? Should there be a per trip cost, weekend specials, daily, weekly or monthly, or free and Why?


Reader Poll Replies: 

I would have no problem paying a dollar or two to ride the monorail.  Sure beats the taxi costs.  Susan Harris    OH

*  It would be good if it was free, but realistically who is going to spend millions building a monorail and then let you ride for free.  So I would have not problem paying a couple dollars a trip.  Weekend or holiday specials would be nice.  Jimmie  CA 

*  The cost could be subsidized or free through the casino's themselves. Rides would cost say around $2 but tickets could be used as discounts/for freebies at casinos/restaurants etc. Dennis

*  Monorail should definitely be free just like all of the other monorails.  If a fee has to be charged, then there should be some type of plan where a person can by a "pass" for so many rides.  Ann Martino

*  The price should be about $2.00  per person.  Debbie McReynolds

Use of the monorail should be free. The hotels or businesses which will be served by the monorail should subsidize the operating costs.  Edward J Mercier

*  Mixed emotions on the cost question. One school of thought is that the casino's want your business, let them subsidize the fee. The other school of thought is that everything 'costs' so it should be commensurate with bus fare prices, ie-2-3 dollars for a trip the length of the strip. Ron Blood Boston

*  It would be wonderful if it were free of course. but unfortunately nothing is for free. forget weekend specials, big money comes in on weekends. They can afford to pay. if they do charge and I am sure they will, it must be cheaper than a taxi ride and a bit more than a bus. This way all will still be in operation without any one company failing.  The casinos can somehow run specials, maybe even in there fun books, giving them the overall cost would be ideal. if they want us to come and play let them ultimately burden the cost. As I think of it that is the way I would say to go, let the casinos chip in.  Watcherboy

*  Free... it is best for the casinos on the strip to make sure tourists stay on the strip and not off the strip were you can win and save money. Keep the tourist trapped in the "Mega-Tourist trap" area.  Colin Meyer

*  2.00 one way only is a fair price.  G.J. Smith

*  A buck a ride seems fair, if they're well located.  Otherwise, why bother.  Big boon to hotels on the far ends of the strip.  Barbara Aroeste
