I’m in Las Vegas this week for a convention. I’m staying at the Las Vegas Hilton at Resorts World and need to get back and forth from the Las Vegas Convention Center. I just tried the Las Vegas Loop and I’m hooked.

Loop Map
The Las Vegas Loop is a new transportation system that was created by the Boring Company, a tunnel construction firm founded by Elon Musk. The system will consist of a network of underground tunnels that will allow for the efficient movement of people and vehicles throughout the city of Las Vegas.


The concept of the Las Vegas Loop is simple: passengers will be transported in electric vehicles that will travel through a series of tunnels equipped with automated guideway systems. These systems will allow for high-speed travel without the need for a driver, greatly reducing the risk of accidents and improving overall safety. The Teslas that currently run in Las Vegas do have drivers, but it seems it won’t be long until the system goes driverless.

Boring Company

The Boring Company has only the first phase of the Las Vegas Loop running. It includes a tunnel that runs from the Las Vegas Convention Center to Resorts World. The second phase of the project will include the construction of additional tunnels to connect other major Las Vegas destinations, including Harry Reid International Airport, the Strip, and downtown Las Vegas. Once completed, the Las Vegas Loop will provide a fast, convenient, and environmentally-friendly transportation option. I could not believe that a daily ticket only costs $4.50.

One of the most exciting aspects of the Las Vegas Loop is its potential to revolutionize transportation in other cities as well. The Boring Company’s tunneling technology could be used to create similar systems in other urban areas, providing a more efficient and sustainable alternative to traditional modes of transportation.

Anthony’s Take: The Las Vegas Loop is an ambitious and innovative project that has the potential to transform the way people travel in Las Vegas and beyond. With its advanced technology and commitment to sustainability, the Las Vegas Loop is a promising step towards a more efficient and sustainable future. I know that I will be taking it in the future as is was fast, inexpensive, and comfortable.

“Game changer” is a strong description for a game that remains mostly unchanged.

Wow what a terrible take. There is just a crappier less efficient metro system. Why not use all this money to actually build high capacity transit instead of a billionaire’s vanity project for his electric cars? These cars could never carry as many people as a proper metro rail system. Most other cities that have tried to sign on to this have found the Boring Company has left them high and dry. I hope this doesn’t spread to other cities.

High capacity transit in the Covid era, people being pushed on train tracks in NYC, and hoards of people being confined into a tiny box car? Mass transit has been proven to be a failure in a lot of areas. Las Vegas does not need a subway. A loop is a good way to move people in Las Vegas sized cities.

They can’t even get their shills to use different language. Pathetic

then someday you learn “spread” is complete fiction. It’s all about activation and seasonality….spread has been a fraudulent idea for centuries….with that said, this seems cool…but what’s wrong with the current transit options?

This is the Covid era. Don’t you realize that millions of New Yorkers are being pushed onto the train tracks in NYC every day? Maybe billions even. Hoards of people confined to a tiny box car barely larger than a regular car crammed with 6 drunk, pestilent Las Vegas partygoers? Mass transit has proven to be a failure in a lot of areas where there is no mass transit. Las Vegas does not need a subway. A loop de loop is a good way to move people because I says so. Vroom vroom, me like cars.

I’m not sure I follow. Millions or billions of people are not on the tracks from what I’ve seen 🙂

I rode once with colleagues and once by myself. If I was with others I did nit know, I’d likely wear a mask.

‘Why not use all this money to actually build high capacity transit instead of a billionaire’s vanity project for his electric cars?’ – you answered your own question

Patrick March 29, 2023 - 5:34 pm

What happens if the car gets a flat or some other mechanical issue? Does the tunnel get plugged until the car can be removed? And if the cars go driverless, I can imagine all sorts of shenanigans going on in them. ;-O

we went to see it last Friday at Resorts World and it was closed. How can you rely on a system that is closed at 10:30am?

“Environmentally-friendly” except for all that underground tunneling, electricity from coal-fired plants, mining of assorted metals and minerals for the additional batteries and components needed to build individual automobiles instead of trains or other mass transit vehicles, and so on and so on.

Miles to Memories reported there will not be an airport stop. That’s a game changer.

People who think this is better than mass transit have never lived overseas where it is the standard and works well in generally all types of cities.
