The Las Vegas Convention Center Loop is designed to transport commuters to key areas adjacent to the convention center aboard Tesla’s electric autonomous vehicle (EAV) models. With its futuristic station concept designs unveiled by the tech mogul himself via his Twitter handle weeks before, it is eyeing to start operations in the year 2021.
Early 2020 saw two major casino companies approaching The Boring Company and sought the services of the company to build a system like the one at Las Vegas Convention Center.
The tunnel for Wynn Resorts will run under the companies' two hotels – the Wynn and the Encore. Meanwhile, Resorts World plans to use the company’s services to its newest hotel – the Resorts World Las Vegas.
And all is seemingly working in The Boring Company’s favor as the local authorities have been reportedly approved of the applications filed.
According to a quote on an Electreck report, the company ‘have received approval by the Clark County Commission necessary to move forward with constructing the resort’s passenger station and tunnel that will connect to the Las Vegas Convention Center campus via Elon Musk’s innovative transportation system’.
Unlike the Las Vegas Convention Center Loop project, the two casino company’s routes will not come for free as they will be privately funded by the respective parties.
As of press time, there is still no clear timeline for the project available to speculate how the project would go and how long will it take to complete. However, Resort World’s Las Vegas planned opening date in the summer of 2021 can give the average enthusiast an idea of the project’s complete timeline before achieving operational levels.
