On the strip, you catch a taxi in front of the hotels. There will be a designated area for those needing such transportation. Don’t wait in line, go to the front and let the attendant know that you need an accessible taxi. He’ll grab the next one for you or his associate will call a company. Despite how many accessible taxis there are it can still be a while before one shows up. The best trick once you get your first accessible taxi is to get the number for that particular driver and use it if you are in a jam.
Most wheelchair accessible taxis in Vegas are the traditional minivan that loads a wheelchair in the back but one company I experience had a side-loading ramp. There was even a much larger transporter vehicle with an extended roof. Wheelchair accessible taxis either use some model of the Q-Straint locking system or the Sure-Lock to secure the wheelchair on all sides.
