We all know that Henderson is one of the premier neighborhoods to live in Southern Nevada. With a population of 300,000 residents and growing, it’s no surprise why Henderson is the 2nd largest city in our great state. Our close and convenient location is only a 10 minute drive away from the airport and 15 minutes from the Las Vegas strip. Get familiar with our great entertainment, dining and shopping options with our monthly guide.
Luckily, we live in an era where taxi cabs or owning a car isn’t our only two options. The ride sharing service, Uber has finally arrived to the Las Vegas area last year. Uber LV has three driver options: Uber X is a low cost ride with an economy vehicle, Uber XL is for large groups at a discounted rate, while Uber select sends a high-end luxury car to pick you up.
The RTC is our public transit system. Henderson commuters get to take advantage of the park-and-ride lot located at The Fiesta Henderson Casino & Hotel. The route picks passengers up at the main lot at The Fiesta and drops off at major stops on the strip and downtown. For more information on park and ride, click here.
