LAS VEGAS — Last week, the Las Vegas City Council voted to approve the Boring Company's plan for a citywide Loop system.
A Boring Company Loop system consists of tunnels in which Tesla autonomous electric vehicles travel at high speeds between stations to transport people within a city.
The first system is currently being built at the Las Vegas Convention Center, but the Boring Company now plans to connect the convention center's Loop to casinos on the strip in order to eventually create a citywide Loop.
The plan is to eventually build a 15-mile tunnel system that will go all the way from the McCarran airport to the Fremont Street Experience in the north, with stops along all the major resorts along the strip.
The planned tunnel would also loop westward around the Allegiant Stadium and the Orleans Hotel.
Officials have said that Boring Co.
Will cover the cost of building the main artery of the Loop.
Hotels that want Loop stations will be responsible for paying those costs.
"Zero public dollars would be going into this system," said Boring Co.'s president, Steve Davis.
