Airport Shuttle Service to DEF CON 22!

It’s a known fact: Vegas cab drivers can be … indirect. Even worse, it’s a real challenge to keep a cab smelling daisy-fresh in 110 degree heat. So how does one get from the airport to the Rio without taking an unnecessary tour of Henderson and baking like a potato?

There is a way.

We’ve partnered with LASxpress to shuttle DEF CON attendees from McCarran to their hotels, Rio and otherwise. It costs 11 bucks (18 non-stop), and has the benefits of meet and greet service and immediate boarding.

Of course, there is something of a vision-quest feeling to waiting around in the desert, sweating in a small space as you travel aimlessly throughout the universe. So, you can still do that, too.

If you’d rather try the shuttle route, just click here to register.
