Las Vegas One Step Closer to Vegas Loop

Nov 30, 2021

The Las Vegas tourism community recently took a significant step forward in the development of the Vegas Loop, an express underground transportation solution that will help ease traffic congestion and offer visitors and locals convenient access to world-class resorts and entertainment.

The Clark County Commission unanimously approved the special use permit and franchise agreement for the proposed 29-mile tunnel transportation system designed by Elon Musk’s The Boring Company.The special use permit allows The Boring Company to apply for and receive building permits to construct the proposed tunnels. The franchise agreement allows the company to operate the system, collect fares and oversee advertising and partnerships.

The Vegas Loop will connect to the existing Convention Center Loop located at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC), which is also the World Trade Center Las Vegas (WTCLV). The .8-mile, bi-directional tunnel 40 feet underneath the LVCC/WTCLV connects the new West Hall with the existing North, Central and South Halls via three passenger stations on the 200-acre campus. The connection to the Vegas Loop will increase connectivity and convenience for both business and leisure travelers moving throughout the resort corridor.

The Convention Center Loop became operational in June and allows up to 4,400 convention attendees per hour to be transported across the sprawling campus in just under two minutes, free of charge in all-electric Tesla vehicles. By foot, the walk would take approximately 25 minutes.

“We are very excited to take the next steps, working with Clark County leaders and our partners throughout Las Vegas, to build a fast, safe transportation system for this incredible destination,” says Steve Davis, president, The Boring Company.

There are currently 51 planned stations for the Vegas Loop throughout the Las Vegas Strip and Clark County. The system is also anticipated to connect to the City of Las Vegas and McCarran International Airport. Passengers can travel directly to their desired location without stopping and the Vegas Loop will be a must-experience attraction for visitors.

“Las Vegas continues to innovate and transform itself. The Vegas Loop will be a game-changer for our visitors in moving them around our exciting destination quickly, conveniently and in an entertaining ‘Only Vegas’ way,” said Steve Hill, president and CEO of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA).

The development of the Vegas Loop will be paid for by The Boring Company, passenger stations paid for by respective property owners, and it will be fare-based for passengers.
