Could the Las Vegas Strip Go Multi-Modal?

The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada is funding a $2.7 million planning effort in anticipation of a transportation corridor for the Las Vegas Strip.

Las Vegas "has finally anted up on a comprehensive transportation plan," according to an article by Eric Jaffe. That's because "[the] Regional Transportation Commission recently staked $2.7 million to engage the urban planning services of Michael Gallis, who will study the Vegas resort corridor and recommend how it can create (and pay for) a genuine cohesive mobility network. The plan is expected within the next year and a half."

The article includes a lot more information about the daytime workforce and tourist population of the strip, as well as past efforts to deliver alternative transportation modes around Las Vegas. One thing to be careful of while reading the article, however, is an implied conflation of the city of Las Vegas, with unincorporated Clark County, which is where The Strip is located.
