Las Vegas Ground Transportation, Mortgage Options
Last week, I had a short meeting to attend in Las Vegas. I decided to take my bus route mindset to Nevada. One, to challenge myself in another city, and two, hopefully save some money.
I looked up my meeting location and found the closest hotel in the area. I called and asked for their shuttle schedule from the airport. They had a shuttle every hour and it would take about 30 minutes to get back to the hotel. I would then have to walk a few minutes to my final destination. Sadly, my arrival fell right between the two shuttle times. If I used the shuttle, there was a chance I would be late for my meeting. Although it was a free courtesy shuttle, possibly being late would not be worth it.
Using Taxi Fare Finder Las Vegas, my estimated taxi fare with tip and tax added up to $20. Too rich for my blood, but I kept it in mind as my emergency backup.
I checked the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada website and entered the airport address and my meeting place. One bus, one transfer, two dollars, 50 minutes, and 10 minutes to walk to my meeting, I think we have a winner!
Whenever you go to another city, if your schedule permits, I suggest using public transportation to feel the city as a local and save a few bucks for your trouble. Going through my transportation options, I thought of mortgage choices. There are many variables with a mortgage. Fixed or Adjustable? 15 or 30 year? How much down payment can you handle? No points, higher rate or pay a point or two for a lower rate? Just like my search for Las Vegas transportation, do your due diligence and select the option you can afford without consequences. With these historically low rates, good luck, and I hope your ride is a smooth one like bus rides on the Strip.

Fascinating. I just discovered I have a lot of Trekkie readers. Live long and prosper!
