MGM Resorts dumping parking fees Las Vegas Sun · May 18, 2020 at 3:46 pm MGM Resorts International says it is getting rid of paid parking as it prepares to welcome guests back after the coronavirus shutdown. MGM has said it plans to initially reopen only its Bellagio and New York-New York properties on the Strip once the state gives the green light. Casinos statewide have been closed since mid-March after Gov. Steve Sisolak ordered the shutdown of nonessential businesses to help curb the spread of the coronavirus. No date has been set for casinos to resume operations. “MGM Resorts is updating many of our offerings as we prepare to welcome guests back, and that includes implementing free parking,” the company said in a statement issued today.
