TRANSPORTATION DEMAND MANAGEMENT PROGRAMS FOR LAS VEGAS HOTELS AND CASINOS

During the fall of 1993 three mega-resort hotel/casino projects opened in Las Vegas, Nevada; the MGM Grand, Treasure Island, and the Luxor. Collectively these facilities added 10,431 new hotel rooms and created approximately 15,000 jobs. To develop a potentially successful and viable TDM program for the hotel/casino industry, it was important to first identify the existing commute environment. To gain an understanding of the unique employee commute characteristics of Las Vegas hotels and casinos, an employee work travel survey was conducted. In January 1993, an employee questionnaire and survey was distributed to the 3,800 employees of the 4,032 Excalibur Hotel and Casino. The survey identified the following elements: Where employees live within the Las Vegas area; Current modes of travel; General work hours; and Employee willingness to ride share or use transit.
