Jane Ann Morrison is right: Hailing a cab off the Strip is an iffy proposition

Reading Jane Ann Morrison’s Sunday column regarding taxis not showing up made me laugh. It’s been common knowledge among locals for years that, unless you are literally at a Strip hotel or the airport, taxis usually will not show up.

I recall this happened to me more than once. At one point, after hours waiting, the dispatcher got nastier and nastier in tone each time I called. I finally had to take a bus to the Strip and get in line for a taxi at a hotel-casino.

I have found this is more the rule than the exception.

With Uber and Lyft now available, I will not ever take another taxi in this town. I also have a job in which I’m frequently asked by tourists how best to get around or get to and from the airport, I make a point to suggest using a rideshare company rather than a taxi service.
