Boring Company has dug the Vegas Convention Center Tunnel.
LVCC Loop will connect the LVCC New Exhibit Hall with the existing campus (North/Central/South Halls). Three stations locations will offer convenient access between key LVCC destinations and nearby transportation connections.
Typical walk time between the New Exhibit Hall to the existing North/Central Hall can take up to 15 minutes. The same trip on LVCC Loop will take approximately 1 minute.
Loop is a high-speed underground public transportation system in which passengers are transported via compatible autonomous electric vehicles (AEVs) at up to 155 miles per hour.
Standard AEVs are Tesla Model X and Model 3 vehicles. High-occupancy AEVs use a modified Tesla Model 3 chassis to transport up to 16 passengers with both sitting and standing room.

The benefits of subsurface transportation systems include:
No surface noise and vibration. Tunnel construction and operation will be silent, invisible, and imperceptible at the surface.
No communities divided with lanes and barriers. We will not use public surface right-of-way for construction or operation of its system.
Comfortable and convenient for passengers. Higher speeds and straighter alignments are possible due to fewer subsurface right-of-way constraints.
Weatherproof. Operation is unaffected by weather.
If the Convention Center tunnel is successful it could eventually be expanded to include the entire Las Vegas strip.
The Vegas Loop alignment has not yet been finalized, Vegas Loop could include many different service extensions, including those shown on the map below.
