Uber and Lyft drivers logged 11,465 pick-ups at McCarran International on Monday, setting a single-day record that was largely driven by conventioneers headed to CES.
Taxicabs reported 18,413 pick-ups at McCarran on Monday, not quite breaking the standing record of 19,948 rides logged during the previous CES convention on Jan. 4, 2017.
