Elon Musk’s The Boring Company has announced plans to expand its Vegas Loop transportation system with 18 new stations. The system, which currently has three stations, uses underground tunnels to transport passengers in autonomous electric vehicles at high speeds.
Background on the Vegas Loop
The Vegas Loop is a transportation system that was developed by The Boring Company for the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC). The system uses underground tunnels to transport passengers between various locations at the LVCC, including exhibition halls and outdoor areas.
The system is currently operational and has three stations, with plans to expand to a total of nine stations. The Boring Company has now announced plans to further expand the system with an additional 18 stations.
New Stations and Routes
The new stations will be located along the Las Vegas Strip and other major destinations in the city. The Boring Company has not yet released details on the specific locations of the new stations, but they are expected to connect major hotels, resorts, and other tourist destinations.
The company also plans to introduce new routes that will connect various locations in the city, such as the airport and downtown Las Vegas. These routes will be in addition to the existing routes that connect the LVCC to nearby parking lots and exhibition halls.
Benefits of the Expansion
The expansion of the Vegas Loop is expected to provide several benefits to the city of Las Vegas. By connecting major tourist destinations, the system will make it easier for visitors to move around the city and reduce congestion on the streets.
The system’s use of electric vehicles will also contribute to the city’s efforts to reduce carbon emissions and promote sustainable transportation. The Boring Company has stated that the vehicles used in the system will be capable of transporting up to 16 passengers at a time, which will reduce the number of vehicles on the road.
