The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) Board of Directors approved a contract with The Boring Company to design and construct a twin-tunnel Loop system for the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC). The project is currently under construction. LVCC Loop will provide fast and convenient transportation for convention and trade show attendees across the LVCC campus.
This project should be completed before the Consumer Electronics Show in January 2021.
High-occupancy AEVs (autonomous electric vehicles) use a modified Tesla Model X chassis to transport up to 16 passengers with both sitting and standing room.
Future expansions to augment LVCC Loop can include service extensions to McCarran International Airport, hotels on the Las Vegas Strip, downtown Las Vegas, Las Vegas Stadium, and, in the long term, Los Angeles.
Loop system extensions will operate at speeds of up to 155 mph. AEVs, which will be capable of moving between the LVCC Loop and Loop system extensions, will adjust speeds upon entering the LVCC Loop system.
