On Wednesday, Las Vegas City Council approved an expansion of tunnels for the Vegas Loop to go through downtown Las Vegas.
Vegas Loop is a privately funded, underground public transportation system project by The Boring Company. Last year, Las Vegas City Council approved The Boring Company’s application to expand the Vegas Loop into downtown Las Vegas. This week, the City Council approved an expansion of tunnels in downtown to add more stations. While stations in the downtown area are not finalized at this time, proposed ones include downtown Las Vegas hotels, Area 15 and four civic stations.
Vegas Loop is envisioned to create a 68-mile system for the Las Vegas valley with a network of more than 60 stations including Harry Reid Airport, Allegiant Stadium, and UNLV. Passengers are transported in Tesla Model X and Ys.
The 50 year non-exclusive agreement between the City of Las Vegas and The Boring Company allows the company to use the City’s right-of- way to construct, operate, and maintain Vegas Loop. No taxpayer funds were requested or contributed.
