Las Vegas—New rental car facility opens

Las Vegas McCarran opened its new consolidated rental car center last week. The $170 million facility, which had been under construction for several years, is 3 miles south of the airport terminal. Located on Gilespie Street, it houses 11 rental companies and has a capacity of 5,000 cars. It provides the convenience of renting, price-shopping and picking up cars all in one place.

Passengers get to the center by taking shuttle buses. Now that rental companies no longer run their own shuttles, the airport hopes the new garage will help ease curbside congestion.

Rental car customers have been paying $3 per day since 2004 to help pay for it, an arrangement that will continue indefinitely to help pay for its maintenance.
