Showgoers have many options for getting to and around the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) during the 2015 SEMA Show. The best option will depend on where you’re staying, what time you’re arriving and, ultimately, what you prefer. The transportation guide below will help you make the best decision.

Shuttle Service

  • Hotel Shuttles: Available each morning and afternoon on Show days (Tuesday–Friday, November 3–6), a complimentary shuttle runs every 20 minutes from select partner hotels to the LVCC. The service is an easy, affordable alternative to taking a taxi or the Monorail to and from the Show each day. Specific hours and hotels are available on
  • SEMA-to-AAPEX Shuttle: SEMA Show credentials provide access to the AAPEX Show at the Sands Expo Center, and the complimentary shuttle service to the AAPEX Show makes it easy for Showgoers to navigate between the SEMA and AAPEX shows. Hours and specific pick-up/drop-off locations can be found at
  • SEMA Show Loop: To help navigate the SEMA Show, a complimentary SEMA Show Loop is available during Show hours to transport Showgoers from designated locations at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Visit for details.
  • Airport Shuttle: Available during designated hours on Thursday and Friday, an airport shuttle to McCarran International Airport is available for just $10.

With trains running every seven minutes, the Las Vegas Monorail is one of the most popular transportation choices among Showgoers. While trains fill up quickly during the week, they run frequently and lines move fast. Exclusive discounts are available to SEMA Show attendees, with tickets available for a single ride, or unlimited travel ranging for two days to seven days. The SEMA Show discounted tickets are available online.


With two taxi pick-up and drop-off locations at the SEMA Show, taking a taxi cab is a convenient option. Ideal for those looking for a direct ride from or to a specific location, taxis can be accessed from either the East end of the Performance Pavilion, or in the Blue Lot on the East end of the Grand Lobby, adjacent to Central Hall.


As an alternative to taking a taxi, there will be designated drop-off/pick-up locations for those using Uber or Lyft. Details are available on

Strip & Downtown Express (SDX)

If you’re staying in Downtown Las Vegas or along the Strip, the public bus service is a viable option. The SDX runs daily and includes 18 different stops. Visit for details.


If you’re staying at a hotel property that is in close proximity to the LVCC, you can save time and money by walking to the SEMA Show. There are nearly a dozen hotels nearby that make this a great option.


Limited parking is available in the Gold Lot, for those driving their own vehicles to the SEMA Show. There is a nominal fee, but it may be ideal if you know you will be arriving early and staying late so that you don’t have to worry about your transportation at the end of a long day.
