    Okay so my last trip was my first time using Uber and Lyft, but I did take it to a few places while I was there. I will list them to the best of my recollection. I will also add my uber and Lyft promo codes that can get you and I free rides $$$.

    Uber: mackb214ue
    Lyft: MACKENZIE462509

    Pick up locations:

    Cromwell/Flamingo - they are supposed to be the same pick up area. Sometimes the drivers came right to the Cromwell valet. However the marked pick up is just beside the small walkway door from Cromwell to Flamingo, on the Flamingo side of the wall. If you're at Flamingo its on the opposite side of the traffic circle where the taxi stand is located.

    Ballys - it is out the side door that exits out Flamingo Rd. The door is right across from Sullys Bar and in between the gift shop and the front desk. It's also where the tourist buses make their drops of that helps.

    Cosmo - we got picked up just on the next road from the main taxi pick up/drop off. If you've seen the Cosmo valet area you know there's 4 or 5 lanes, so I guess lane 2 would be the pick up.

    Aria - I was pretty loaded but I believe it just to the south of the main taxi pick up.

    Mandalay Bay - it is in the floor below the taxi drop off. It appears to be where the valet is located.

    Downtown - The D has a sign for pick up located just to the right of the back door, but the driver got picked us up on the Main Street. He stated easiest pick up downtown was in front of the plaza on the west side, right across from the Golden Gate back door. Later in the week we got picked up there and it was much easier

    Kinda off topic, but the first time I tried Uber, myself and two of the hosts from the MGM flew up to Levi's stadium to see the Packers / 49ers game earlier this year. The stadium is not that far from the airport, so we get out of the airport, one of the guys requests a car from his Uber app. and within a couple minutes, a car pulls up and gets us to the stadium for probably 1/3 the price of a taxi. did the same thing on the trip back to the airport. It was quick, convenient, and hassle free.

    I don't know why, but I was under the impression that rideshare was not allowed at the airport. This is very useful information. Thanks!

    It's very hard to go back to taxis once you have uber'd for a while. Can't speak for lyft as we don't have it in England.
