Starting early next year the practice of long hauling by some taxi drivers could be over as a flat rate charge from McCarren Airport goes in to effect. Long hauling is the practice of using the tunnel and interstate between the airport and the Strip instead of quicker surface streets.
The five member Nevada Taxicab Authority approved the flat rate charges with the new fare structure to officially go in to effect January 1st 2020. The proposed one way fares are as follows
Zone 1- $19 from Sunset Road north to Tropicana (Mandalay Bay and Luxor area)
Zone 2- $23 from Tropicana Avenue north to Flamingo Road (Bellagio and Aria area)
Zone 3- $27 from Flamingo Road north to Stratosphere Hotel (Sahara and Stratosphere area)
