    Noticed a lot of traffic on T Mac Drive, 2:30 pm, I think classes were letting out, people from student parking trying to get to Paradise. Will be a mess once you add in the Rideshare cowboys.

    This new lot move ****ing sucks.

    The lot itself is amazingly disorganized- people leaving multiple directions across multiple paths.

    It's smaller.

    And because you have to deal with lights on eh exit paths traffic builds up to the lot. Even on bad days the old lot was never this congested.

    And because you have to move past the Tropicana light it takes significantly longer to get to the airport. You'll be waiting at the trop light multiple times in a row.

    Why the **** did they do this?

    because uber drivers are dangerous and don't learn when someone says don't drive through the liquor store lot.

    They got the 15 minute wait they wanted for rideshare pickups.

    Is this really why? Because they kept driving through that damn parking lot instead of going to the street??

    The airport authorities are probably the only ones who know for sure. The local Uber office might know or might know the official excuse.

    Its not about the Cab Cartel. Its about the congestion that R/S helps aggravate on that side of Paradise when its busy, plus... all of the drivers cutting through the liquor store parking lot. That's why it happened. This does not in any way benefit the cab companies but deep down inside you know this.

    If the wait time increases from 7 to 15 minutes then more rideshare customers will start taking cabs.

    They will just rate the driver low and next time they will request the Uber before they get to the garage, creating even bigger headache. Nobody's going to start taking cabs again lol

    You mean aside from the roughly two million cab rides from McCarran last year ?? McCarran cab rides are only down 10% from this time last year and taxis picked up one million more rides than rideshare last oct-apr So ..... lol??.... nope.

    Rationalize however you need to. Taxis are the dinosaurs of the transportation industry. They are losing market share everyday. The majority of people can't stand cabs or cab drivers. That's why it was such an easy switch to Uber and Lyft. Uber won't be around forever, someone will come in and do things right expose how corrupt they are. Maybe it will be a self driving rideshare service? Who knows?

    From the linked article that I used above (and you quoted), taxis in Las Vegas gave one million more rides than did rideshare (at McCarren anyway) from last October to last March so your opinion is incorrect - at least at McCarran because more people chose taxis there than not.

    People ignoring the sign at 5star may be the main reason

    Not that it matters but but it was crazy how nobody here admits to staging at airport lot but tons of people here admit to taking 5-star shortcut.

    Staging versus heading there after a dropoff during a surge? Surge is the only time I go to the airport lot, so makes sense to me, I took that shortcut many times. Staging at the airport lot when the queue is high is silly.
