The Boring Company connects the LVCC Loop to the Las Vegas Strip

The Boring Company has added a fourth passenger station to its Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) loop that provides direct underground access to Resorts World Las Vegas.

This is a significant development as the new extension effectively connects the Las Vegas Convention Center to the Las Vegas Strip. The company expects the trip from the LVCC West station to the Resorts World Las Vegas stop to take only a few minutes. Hours of operation for the new station will vary depending on events scheduled at the Las Vegas Convention Center and the convention schedule.

More importantly, the new station marks the start of the Vegas Loop, being the first of over 55 stops that will form the city-wide loop. The latter, which aims to eventually transport thousands of passengers per hour in the resort corridor, will be built in phases including the Resorts World Las Vegas passenger station, the LVCC loop and future service extensions along the Strip and the downtown Las Vegas.

“Today marks a monumental moment not only for our resort, but also for Las Vegas. Our passenger station will make it easier than ever to visit our resort from the Las Vegas Convention Center and ultimately connect us to key destinations throughout the city. Resorts World Las Vegas strives to transform the way people experience Las Vegas, and this offering does just that. We are proud to partner with The Boring Company on what we believe is the future of travel.

Scott Sibella, President of Resorts World Las Vegas

Prior to the addition of the Resorts World Las Vegas resort, the Las Vegas Convention Center Loop was 2.7 kilometers long with three stops; now it has four stops, but the length of the new extension has not been announced. Above ground, the shortest distance between LVCC West Station and Resorts World Las Vegas using existing roads is 1.3 miles (2.1 kilometers).

Last year, the City of Las Vegas approved The Boring Company’s plan to build a 29-mile tunnel system that will span the entire Strip and connect it to the airport and several popular locations in the city.

According to Steve Hill, President and CEO of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA), Resorts World Las Vegas’ new LVCC Loop station “is an important step in the development of a revolutionary transportation solution in Las Vegas. “.

The LVCC Loop is an all-electric, zero-emission underground public transportation system in which passengers are transported directly to their destination without stopping en route. The service is provided by Tesla Model Y and Model X vehicles driven through tunnels by human operators at top speeds of 30 mph (48 km/h) on curves and 40 mph (64 km/h) on lines straight.
