Yesterday was a huge day for Uber in Las Vegas! Tens of thousands in Nevada have opened the app looking for a ride — and now with a simple tap of the button, Las Vegans can now access the convenient, safe and affordable way to get around their town.

And, who better to take one of the first rides in Vegas than Nevada State Senator and Majority Leader Michael Roberson — and one of Uber Nevada’s greatest champions.

A resident of Henderson, Senator Roberson works day in and day out to “Keep Nevada Strong” and his dedication to providing expanding transportation options to his community is no exception.
