The Boring Company to expand Las Vegas tunnel network to 65 miles, connecting key destinations

Tech entrepreneur Elon Musk’s transportation venture, The Boring Company, is making significant strides by extending its Las Vegas tunnel network by 25 miles, resulting in a total of 65 miles and 69 stations. The expansion, which includes 18 additional stations, aims to enhance accessibility for both residents and tourists exploring the vibrant city.

This ambitious project has been given the green light by Clark County commissioners in Nevada, who recently voted 6-to-1 in favor of the expansion. The approval was given only after TBC’s lawyer, Stephanie Allen, assured the commissioners that the project would not be funded by taxpayers, but solely by the company.

Commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick expressed her concerns about the tunnel network’s emphasis on tourists instead of providing reliable transportation for resort and casino employees, given the difficulties faced by constituents in her district during their commute due to tunnel construction. In response, TBC’s lawyer unveiled plans to expand the network to residential areas near the strip, aiming to address and alleviate these concerns.

The Vegas Loop currently covers a modest distance of 2 miles and serves five stops near the Las Vegas Convention Center. However, TBC’s ambitious vision involves linking the tunnels to key locations in Las Vegas, including the Harry Reid International Airport, Allegiant Stadium, and downtown area, with future prospects of extending the network to reach as far as Los Angeles.
