A monorail extension to Mc Carran International Airport or to Downtown Las Vegas has often been discussed but it doesn’t look like it will happen anytime soon but another extension may happen; Approval has been given for a extension from the MGM Grand to the Mandalay Bay although the details such as design, stations, permissions especially from MGM Resorts as well as financing need to be worked out. At present a smaller monorail runs between the Excalibur and Mandalay resorts with a stop in between at the Luxor in one direction it’s not known if that monorail would be incorporated in to the new extension or just removed. Because of the location of the short monorail at the front of the properties on the Strip it seems unlikely that they would continue to operate that system but that would be up to MGM Resorts. The Mandalay Bay is a beautiful property although it’s location on the South Strip is a hindrance for food traffic from the busier part of the Strip but with the new monorail extension could bring in more traffic from other parts of the Strip.
