No Rental Vehicle or Flight? Passengers Stranded Become Inventive to Get Ride

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (702 Times, NV Globe) – Numerous airline customers are coming up with inventive methods to go home and locate a ride after being stranded without planes or rental cars around the nation.

Some people have used well-known applications like Uber and Lyft to cross state borders. Local rideshare drivers in Las Vegas have reported that they have received requests for trips to Southern California and Arizona; however, they noted anonymously that the price quotations were not worth it because of the pay for a one-way passenger, time, and petrol. At least one driver claims to have taken a passenger all the way to Orange County.

Sylvia Kadlubowski, a resident of the Phoenix region, had her trip from Phoenix to Las Vegas cancelled and decided to hire a car instead. She gave other stranded travelers seats in her car.

“I got a rental truck. I said something to the flight attendant, ‘As long as they’re not a serial killer they can ride with me,’” Kadlubowski said in jest. She said people clapped and patted her on the back for her kindness, as several passengers eagerly took her offer. She ended up driving two women to Las Vegas.

“It seemed kind of selfish to go to Vegas just driving,” Kadlubowski said, and didn’t ask for anything in return.

One artist in Las Vegas made the decision to promote rides on social media.

“I saw all these people stranded. I said, ‘Anybody stranded here in Vegas– I’m happy to get you somewhere’,” Izzy Presley said, taking up an offer to drive to Phoenix.

Many stranded travelers in Las Vegas have used ridesharing services to leave the airport’s grounds and locate a temporary place to stay.

“We have seen families with small children– I’ve had a lot of people asking me for advice on where to go,” said Jeffrey Lustick, who said plenty are looking for family-friendly places to stay, eat and visit.

“You almost become a tour guide. I recommend Hoover Dam, Red Rock Canyon. I just make it as positive as I can,” he said.
