    Just a note if you're at the Bellagio. Not sure how effective it will be, since it's thought that a lot of taxi drivers are going to ignore it and provide service anyway.

    And yes, this is in response to Uber/Lyft. They believe that by doing this they'll pressure the casinos to ban the ride-share services from their properties.

    I don't see how this can be anything but an utter failure.

    And that right there is the problem. They're legally barred from refusing to take you where you want to go, so they can't say, "No, I won't go to Bellagio" without risking a fine and maybe even a suspension. Now, they're of course free to drop you off and then head to another property to line up for a fare, but if they create a shortage of taxis at Bellagio, that's only going to drive people to Uber/Lyft, resulting in even more people saying, "Well, taxis are unreliable, I'll just stick with Uber/Lyft".
