For its size, Las Vegas has an above-average size fleet of wheelchair taxis which can accommodate both manual and powered wheelchairs. The accessible taxi vans have a lowered floor and are equipped for rear (lift gate) entry. Unlike in other cities, wheelchair taxis can be ordered on demand and typically arrive within 15-20 minutes, if not sooner, in Las Vegas.
