Officials Vote to Expand Boring Company Tunnels in Las Vegas



The Boring Company’s project in Las Vegas received Wednesday a vote for expansion by county officials.

Bloomberg reported that the Clark County Commission approved two additional tunnels connecting hotels with the Las Vegas Convention Center. 

Boring Company describes the “Loop” as an all-electric, zero-emissions, high-speed underground public transportation system in which passengers are transported via compatible Autonomous Electric Vehicles (AEVs) at up to 150 miles per hour through Main Artery Tunnels between stations. AEVs are Tesla vehicles (Model S, 3, and X) that operate autonomously within the Loop system.

Once completed, the 2-mile Convention Center Loop will transport riders beneath the Las Vegas Convention Center free of charge. The $52.5 million Loop is the Boring Company’s first commercial project.

The initial tunnel was mostly finished in May but is not yet open for rides. 

Bloomberg reported that Las Vegas airport officials have also held introductory conversations with the Boring Company in recent weeks.

Boring Company is also working on projects in Los Angeles and Washington D.C.

Short of teleporting, this is a good idea than will be GREAT, if one of the stops include McCarran Airport but the LV “financiers” and their “infrastructure organizations” will never allow it. That is, unless they get a very large “piece of the action...”
