Hmmm, Boulder City is off Lyft's coverage area. I assume it's off Uber's too. So one would likely have to drive back to Henderson to even get work.

On the other hand, strip to BC is a pretty damn good fare (far and almost all highway).

The Speedway is also far out of the way of much of anything, and I imagine any rides from the area would be at the speedway itself. But again, strip to there would be a pretty good fare.

One additional thing I noticed is the Route 91 Country Music Festival. This Friday through Sunday. It is being held at the MGM Festival Village across from the Luxor. http://rt91harvest.com/
 
Was there last Night, Picked up 2 Pax at Excalibur Tower 1 and was stucked on LVBD for 40min on Red light to E. Reno because Security let about 25000 people from the Venue out to LVBD. So traffic lights are manual switched.
