The Nevada Taxicab Authority (NTA) which regulates Las Vegas taxi companies has recently setup a temporary checkpoint at McCarran International Airport to discourage taxicab drivers from long-hauling travelers leaving from the LAS Airport to the strip and or downtown. Checkpoints were recently setup in early June, 2012.
The practice of Longhauling is illegal and occurs when a taxicab driver takes a longer route without the prior permission of the rider in order to increase the cost of the fare. Longhauling is considered to be one of the biggest problems for the Nevada Taxicab Authority.
How to File a Las Vegas Taxi Complaint on Longhauling
Long-hauling typically occurs from the McCarran Airport when drivers take the runway tunnel leading to Interstate 215 for trips to the Las Vegas strip. Contact the Nevada Taxicab Authority directly at 702-668-4005 or you may file your Las Vegas taxi complaint online.
