LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The nationwide driver shortage has had a wide impact on the supply chain, creating challenges for stores to keep their shelves stocked.
Now it’s affecting something you might not anticipate: Your wait time at the airport.
That’s because most people take a shuttle bus from the airport to rental car businesses when they travel, and the shuttle buses have been affected by the driver shortage.
A tweet from McCarran International Airport recommends planning for extended wait times related to shuttles between the airport and the McCarran Rent-A-Car Center.
The center is off Gillespie Street south of the airport, home to 10 rental car companies: Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz, National, Payless, Sixt and Thrifty.
No word on how the driver shortage might be affecting other shuttles that operate at the airport.
