    So, LVRJ is saying about 1,000 taxi drivers did go on strike today. My question is has Anyone In Vegas Experiencing Any Delays Due to Taxicab Strike ?

    This is a really crappy time for this to happen (not only because I am arriving on Thursday - LOL) but with the Nascar Race & March Madness coming it's one of the busier times of the year.

    Thanks

    Other than really busy weekends there always seems to be some 15-20 cabs sitting outside most hotels waiting for passengers... so I'd envision the impact of this strike meaning maybe there'll only be 10-12 instead and the actual riders themselves won't notice a difference (or if they do it'll be entirely self imagined).

    But then NASCAR will be something different. Lots of people needing rides to/from the airport and then just getting around Las Vegas itself... I would be expecting service to be slow.

    Since you arrive Thursday it might not be so bad getting from the airport to your hotel, just getting around Friday and Saturday night could be a headache.
