Las Vegas, the Atomic City, is a popular tourist destination in the United States. World famous for its iconic status as the gambling and casino center of the world, this city has it all.

On one side, you'll find the iconic Las Vegas Strip with all the casinos, neon signs, and bustling night-life you can handle. On the other side, you'll find quiet suburban communities, art centers, and elite restaurants. Las Vegas offers the best of both worlds, making it a great place to live and work.

Cruising around town is not too shabby either, as the average commute time is around 24.5 minutes - 1.9 minutes lower than the national average. Despite the low traffic, 89% of people use cars as their primary mode of transportation, with the rest relying on the extensive public transit system, walking, cycling, etc. If you're looking to make a career as a professional delivery driver, Las Vegas is the place to be!

Desert Weather

Las Vegas is a desert city - the heart of Nevada faces some mildly hot summers with annual highs going up to 80°F. However, the rest of the year is pleasant with an average temperature of about 70°F. There's little rain and the majority of days are filled with sunshine.

This is why professional drivers enjoy the weather in Las Vegas. The temperature is just right with clear visibility - making for a great driving experience!

A Thriving Economy

People have been flocking to Las Vegas since the early 1900s. With almost 633,000 people living in Las Vegas, an aggregate household income of approximately $16 billion dollars, and an unemployment rate of 4.8%, it provides the perfect opportunity to build a rewarding career. 

Only 2.0% of people in Las Vegas drive professionally. This is a small percentage for a city this size and one that relies on deliveries. There's an ever-growing need for drivers in Las Vegas, which is why on-demand delivery services like Dispatch provide drivers with flexible hours and a good income. 

Unparalleled Traffic System

Despite the massive influx of people, Las Vegas is revered for its traffic system. Many people will tell you how nice it is to drive in Las Vegas - there’s good signage and plenty of parking. However, people may complain about the distractions (or attractions, depending on how you see it) on the Las Vegas Strip.

Two major freeways go through the city, along with several other minor highways that either lead out of the city or pass near it. Overall, the road system is planned to accommodate excessive traffic as a result of the large number of visitors. Many spots in town are signal-free to eliminate pileups at red lights.

Las Vegas is a great place to drive even if you're unfamiliar with the terrain and city. So, if you’re interested in becoming a professional delivery driver, work at your own convenience, and earn a solid income, join Dispatch’s network of drivers and "Viva Las Vegas!"
