On Monday September 14th, the State of Nevada gave Uber and Lyft the green light to start operating again. This comes after a months-long battlethat first started last November, when a judge halted ridesharing operations. But Monday’s approval led the way forfor both ridesharing companies.
Vegas is one of the biggest tourist destinations in the country. Just last year, more than 41 million tourists visited Sin City. That’s an average of 3.5 million visitors each month, or nearly 800,000 each week. And with a weak transportation system in the city, ridesharing offers these visitors an easier way to get around.This is of particular importance due to the fact that 88% of visitors aren’t renting cars.
Visitors aren’t the only ones ready for ride-hailing, either. Locals—who tend to shy away from Vegas cabbies—have also expressed their interest using UberX and Lyft.
Clark County Isn’t
While the rider population may be excited about the options that ridesharing provides,that Lyft and Uber have already started to operate. Clark County officials are still working on creating county-issued business licenses specifically for the ridesharing industry. Those officials wanted Lyft and Uber to hold off on accepting riders until those licenses were ready. Neither company did so.
