Las Vegas Airport May Soon Get Uber, Lyft Service

August 27, 2015

Travelers flying to Las Vegas may soon be able to hail a ride from Uber or Lyft.

Officials have been developing plans allowing the ride-hailing companies to pick up and drop off passengers using McCarran International Airport.

The option won’t be available until at least late October when county commissioners are expected to consider new rules for business licenses and airport operator permits for the so-called transportation network companies.

airplaneCompanies would need both before offering airport rides, as well as approved regulations expected to be considered by the Nevada Transportation Authority at a Sept. 11 meeting.

Once that happens, airport officials say their working plan would likely allow drivers to drop-off passengers in front of terminals and pick up passengers in designated spaces inside two terminal parking garages.
