Arrive by Plane

Reno-Tahoe International Airport is located 3 miles southeast of the downtown Reno-Sparks metro area. Airlines serving Reno have around 140 flights daily to and from the airport, providing service to 22 cities non-stop and about 31 cities with a same plane one-stop flight.

Complimentary shuttle service from the airport to the Nugget Casino Resort is available daily from 7 a.m. until 8:30 p.m., departing from the airport every hour on the half hour and from the Nugget every hour at the top of the hour. Catch the complimentary shuttle outside the D Doors North of Baggage Claim. Several paid shuttle services are also available.

The Nugget Casino Resort is a short 10-minute cab ride from Reno-Tahoe International Airport. A cab from the airport will run you approximately $22 one-way plus tip, and a Lyft or Uber will be ~$12-15.

City bus service is provided by RTC Ride between the airport and downtown Reno. The city bus pick-up and drop-off location is at the north end of the center curb, outside of Baggage Claim. Bus Route 19, which includes a stop at the Reno-Tahoe International Airport, operates Monday through Friday.
