Pilot Program For Active Loading And Unloading Zones Begins Friday, June 1, in Downtown Las Vegas

Program Designed To Alleviate Congestion

In response to the increased traffic congestion in downtown Las Vegas, a new program for an active loading and unloading zone will be piloted by the city on North Casino Center Boulevard between Fremont Street and Stewart Avenue, beginning Friday, June 1, at 8 a.m.

The new program is a result of a new curb allocation task force made up of community stakeholders tasked to look for ways to make downtown safer and alleviate congestion caused by increased passenger pick-up and drop-off in areas where curb space is in high demand.

The pilot program will be converting several spaces along the curb on Casino Center between Fremont and Ogden to an active loading and unloading only zone, creating an environment similar to McCarran Airport’s passenger pick-up and drop off-areas.

The city’s Parking Services Division will be staffing the area with parking enforcement officers full-time to ensure compliance with the new zone rules.

In the same area, the city, through its partnership with LAZ Parking, will also staff a taxi attendant to manage the taxi zone, ensuring that taxis are always available for customers and the spaces are not used by other vehicles.

This will be a pilot program lasting 30-60 days, after which the city will report its findings back to the task force. If the pilot is a success, the city could look to expand the program into other high-demand areas downtown.
