Uber announces that it's now operating on the streets of Las Vegas

Not even a day after getting approved to operate, Uber hits the streets of Las Vegas

Not even a day after the Nevada Transportation Commission gave permission to both Uber and Lyft to operate in the state, Uber announced it was launching its Uber X ride-hailing service in the greater Las Vegas area.


You can now travel anywhere between Summerlin, Nevada in the Southeast right through to Henderson in the Northwest, a trip that will set you back between $63 to $84. Alternatively, a trip from UNLV to Downtown will cost just $15. I'm excited, as this means the next CES I won't have to worry about catching taxis most of the time, as I can jump in and out of Uber's throughout the week.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
