Nevada officials launch ‘Trip to Strip’ ride-sharing app
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Officials in Las Vegas are celebrating the launch of its new ride-sharing service to compete against Uber and Lyft.
The Las Vegas Review reports the Regional Transportation Commission commemorated the launch of the “Trip to Strip” app at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Trip to Strip operates with Ford vans that fit up to 11 passengers and feature a limousine-style interior with leather seats, free Wi-Fi access and space for luggage.
Regional Transportation Commission spokeswoman Monika Bertaki say Trip to Strip does not raise its prices during busy times unlike ride-hailing services such as Uber and Lyft.
Commission CEO Tina Quigley says the commission will determine whether the service can be extended beyond the Strip based on areas of popular commute.
