Everyone hated cabs 4 years ago. Now they love them. For reasons? Lol. They still won't use a cab. But they love and support cabs.
Hell even cab drivers won't take a cab. They take rideshare.

Where did you get that?

I would think it is more that cabs are no longer relevant to the Vegas residents. They simply are no longer used outside of the tourist areas.

Remember when the news article came out about Vegas cabs long hauling people?
Everyone hated cabs.
When I was driving a cab and mentioned it, everyone said they hated cabs.

Now all these people are defending cabs and saying how vital they are and blah blah.


Cabs are trash. 99% of cab drivers are trash. The whole business model is trash.

Long hauling has gone on since the tunnel was built. I was familiar with it when I came to LV 25-30 years ago on business. And the visitor did not hate cabs other than the problem of getting one when things were busy. We mostly solved the problem by using a couple of private limos for conventions.

And no the locals hatred of cabs has not gone away. Cabs have simply become irrelevant to the local.
