Nevada is moving closer to allowing ride-sharing apps to operate in the state.

Uber and Lyft are inching ever closer to finally operating in Nevada.

That’s because Nevada transportation regulators are preparing to adopt fast-track rules to allow ride-sharing companies to operate in Las Vegas and Reno alongside taxi cabs.

The Nevada Transporation Authority will meet Thursday to vote on emergency regulations for ride-sharing companies.

If approved, these companies will begin submitting applications to operate in the state on Monday.

While, Nevada regulators are embracing ride-sharing, Uber is facing a serious challenge to how they do business in California.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
