Longer wait times for shuttles to Rent-A-Car Center, McCarran officials advise

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- The nationwide driver shortage has had a wide impact on the supply chain, creating challenges for stores to keep their shelves stocked.

Now it's affecting something you might not anticipate: Your wait time at the airport.

That's because most people take a shuttle bus from the airport to rental car businesses when they travel, and the shuttle buses have been affected by the driver shortage.

The center is off Gillespie Street south of the airport, home to 10 rental car companies: Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz, National, Payless, Sixt and Thrifty.
