As cities ease COVID-19 restrictions, those looking to hail a rideshare vehicle may notice increased wait times. In some cases, Uber and Lyft users may struggle to find a ride at all. At the moment, this is especially true in Las Vegas.
According to KTNV News, Las Vegas rideshare drivers are encountering a number of issues as the city begins to reopen. For one, many drivers are still waiting to get their Pandemic Unemployment Assistance. The federally funded program was intended to help independent contractors who were in need of financial assistance as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
