Uber and Lyft are now picking up all over Vegas. Operations started on September 15, 2015 and so far all is going smoothly. There are no restricted areas for use of the ride share services. Both Services are operating at the McCarran Airport.
Now Uber has drastically cut prices many times. The base fare that was 2.40 is now 1.50, the price per mile was 1.85 is now .90, the per minute price was .30 is now .15. The safe fee is increased from 1 dollar to 1.70 Lyft has now come down to near match the rates, Lyft is mostly the same except You can tip on the Lyft App but cannot on Uber. The low rates have made it near impossible for drivers to make a profit and even though that is terrible for Them it is great for the riders. You will see that service is fantastic, cars are ready to pick You up all over Vegas.
An Uber driver was stormed by the Nevada Taxi Authority like He was some kind of a criminal. Five cars took Him down, two officers were wearing ski mask like they were taking down a terrorist. The Uber driver had no bombs, drugs, guns or stolen property but He was treated as such. The officers put His car on a tow truck and issued Him a ticket.
