Flat rate zone-based taxi fares are now in effect at McCarran International Airport.
The rates went into effect after a 6-month pilot program.
If someone takes a taxi from the airport to the area of the Las Vegas Strip closest to the airport, it will now cost a flat fee of $19. If the person is traveling closer to the heart of the Strip, it will cost $23. And if someone takes taxi to the Stratosphere, it will cost $27.
The Nevada Taxi Cab Authority believes this change, along with shorter wait times, will make taxis the most convenient options for riders.
