In an effort to compete with Uber and Lyft, Las Vegas Taxi Cabs are now offering flat rates from the airport to various zones within the city of Las Vegas. Before the New Year, the Nevada Taxicab Authority board unanimously voted to implement the flat rate fees between McCarran International Airport (LAS) and the Las Vegas Strip. The new fare structure was officially implemented on January 1, 2020.
Not only will the new flat rates be cheaper than the metered rates from before but visitors will no longer have to worry about being price gauged by taxi drivers who take longer than necessary routes.
The new one-way rates are as follows:
• Zone 1 — $19 from Sunset Road north to Tropicana Avenue (think Luxor and Mandalay Bay)
• Zone 2 — $23 from Tropicana Avenue north to Flamingo Road (think Bellagio and Aria)
• Zone 3 — $27 from Flamingo Road north to the Stratosphere Hotel (think Stratosphere and Sahara)
If you are traveling to another area besides the above-mentioned zones, the standard metered pricing will still apply. We recommend using the TaxiFareFinder Las Vegas Calculator in these instances to see how much your journey should cost. By using our calculator you will have a base knowledge of approximate cost before you get in the taxi cab. This will allow you to stay informed during your ride to ensure you are not being “taken for a ride”.
