The special use permit and franchise agreement for the company’s loop system, which would include the resort corridor, were unanimously approved by the Clark County Commissioners during a meeting Wednesday morning.
What does that mean for Uber, Lyft, taxis, town cars, limos, shuttles, and even the RTC bus system? How about the monorail? Will it simply become a novelty, rather than a genuine mode of transportation? Only time will tell.
