Resorts World Las Vegas, a new US $4.3 billion resort scheduled to open in summer 2021, has approval to build a resort’s passenger station and tunnel that will connect to the Las Vegas Convention Center campus via Elon Musk’s innovative transportation system. This new tunnel project will swiftly transport passengers between the city’s newest integrated resort and the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) via underground tunnels in all-electric Tesla vehicles in under just two minutes.
This will now become a nearly one mile long tunnel.
It takes about ten minutes to drive from Resorts World Casino to the Convention Center. The tunnel will be five times faster. It would take even more time to drive if you were using your own car and getting from parking lot to parking lot.
The Wynn hotel has also applied to be added to the Boring Tunnel system.
Once the Wynn is added then every 1000 foot extension would add another two major Vegas hotels.
The tunnel will only need to be 5 miles long to connect from the Convention Center to Mandalay Bay. This would then cover the major Vegas hotels on the Vegas Strip. The plan for a Vegas Loop would be a ten mile long system the Fremont Street Experience, through the Strip to the Airport.
During typical peak hours, driving from the Las Vegas Convention Center to Mandalay Bay, can take up to 30 minutes. The same trip on Vegas Loop will take approximately 3 minutes.
