    ok, I see a sticky post for airport and strip properties pickups, drop-offs, etc..

    What about off-strips and downtown?

    Specifically, Gold Coast and MSS.
    I would be taking vehicle to GC, then a vehicle from GC to MSS, then MSS to airport.

    at MSS I always get picked up at north entrance. Near checkin. Only once did uber go to wrong (valet) entrance. But it doesn't hurt to text them "north entrance" just in case they are new. Fremont hotel is right across from Binions where shuttle pick up is, if you are there

    Not sure about Gold Coast but I used Uber from the Palms, just across the street.

    I used them to and from Gold Coast, and to and from Downtown several times. No issues at all, but a couple of them called to be sure they knew where I was waiting. So, so, so much better than cab service from those locations.

    Just have your phone in your hand. For me both Uber and Lyft have always called to ascertain exactly where I am standing.

    I always call the driver and describe my location. For MSS I say the casino exit on the parking garage side. At Sam's Town I said near the valet.

    Uber dropped me off at the Gold Coast near where the Orleans / GoldCoast shuttle pickup is

    Gold Coast pick up is just east of the shuttle pick up location (south-east corner of building). Sign posted at the valet area and at the pick up itself.
