McCarran Opens Cell Phone Parking Lot

A Las Vegas airport has opened a cellphone parking lot for drivers waiting to pick up passengers.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that McCarran International Airport officials said Monday they held a soft opening of the lot last week and are still working out details like signage, lighting and security cameras.

There are 115 spaces in the new parking lot. It's meant for drivers awaiting a call from an arriving passenger to arrange a pickup at the arrivals curb.

Several airports have had cellphone lots for years, including Denver, Phoenix Sky Harbor and Reno-Tahoe International. Former Clark County Director of Aviation Randall Walker felt it was unnecessary for McCarran.
