McCarron to Golden Nugget....Uber or Lyft?

Post by rayj »

So, how much of a pain in the ass is getting an Uber or Lyft? From what I have heard, they do not
pick up at the arrivals? We'll be arriving in Terminal 1 (American Airlines).

Is there a preference...Uber or Lyft? I'll take all the info you can give me.

Thanks,

Ray

I have only used Uber but they both pick up at the same place. It's pretty easy.

From baggage, just go up to level 2 and cross the walking bridge to T1 Parking. The Ride Share signs will lead the way. It took me forever to get used to the term "Ride Share" for some reason. :)

On your return, they can drop you off right at the normal Departures area. They've organized pickup areas in most airports, hotels etc to avoid tons of cars waiting in the entry and no-wait zones. It works pretty well most places.

I only used ride shares a few times when I lived there, but I developed a preference for Lyft.

I've had a near flawless experience with Uber, but have never used Lyft so can't compare. What did you prefer about it?

I assumed they would be pretty much exactly the same other than maybe comparing the price of the same trip on both apps before booking, but I didn't want to manage two apps. I realize it's probably a low amount of time to check both, but I just like to keep things simple sometimes.

I would certainly be open to switching. I can't think of anything more I'd want out of Uber, but maybe I just don't know what I'm missing. What were the main differences?

The drivers. I thought the Lyft drivers were friendlier, more prone to conversate, and didn't seem as rushed. As I said, it was a limited sampling.

That's indeed, unfortunate. Is that a new strain of Covid you contracted? - usually, it's spread in other ways.
