In every city, there are "flat rates" from point A to point B. Like car service from your home to the airport. Like Atlantic City- I've heard there is a flat rate from airport to the casino area. Perhaps the Vegas Taxi Authority can issue flat-rates to south, north and mid-strip, even outlying hotels. While it would piss off some cabbies (or cab company owners), it would be beneficial to travelers. Would this solve the long-hauling issue in Vegas?
