Don’t expect extra cabs on Las Vegas streets during rodeo
27 November 2012
The Nevada Taxicab Authority voted unanimously today against allocating additional cabs for next month's National Finals Rodeo.
Although 150,000 people are expected to be in Las Vegas for the 10-day event, board members concurred that cab fleets for Clark County's 16 companies are large enough to accommodate the crowd.
The authority's staff recommended against adding cabs, and none of the company representatives lobbied for more.
Cab companies and drivers usually are on opposite sides in allocation requests, and the scenario is likely to be different next month when the authority board considers additional cabs for New Year's Eve and the International Consumer Electronics Show.
