Should you require a wheelchair at the airport or any other type of assistance, contact your airline directly prior to travel. Due to lengthy TSA security lines, it is recommended that you arrive at the airport at least 90 minutes before your flight’s scheduled departure.


Wheelchair accessible taxis can be ordered on demand from the airport, but you may have to wait up to 20 minutes depending on demand. Directly outside of baggage claim, you will find a taxi stand and line. Ask the agent to call a wheelchair accessible taxi, and you will be given priority access to the first available adapted cab.

Several RTA city bus routes serve the airport, with the WAX (Westcliff Airport Express) offering service directly to multiple points on the Las Vegas Strip. Additional information on the city bus service to/from the airport is available in the public transportation section of this guide. A chart listing the specific bus routes to hotels and resorts on the Las Vegas Strip is also provided in that section.
