The Boring Company celebrated its one millionth passenger on it Las Vegas Convention Center Loop on Tuesday. The lucky passenger, Dave McPhee from Idaho, was attending the ConExpo-Con/Agg trade show, which is currently being held at the convention center.

The loop system began transporting passengers in June 2021 at the World of Concrete show, and a capacity test that year found that the Convention Center Loop could handle 4,431 passengers per hour. The system now boasts a fleet of 70 Tesla model vehicles, giving hundreds of thousands of people their first ride in a Tesla.

The Convention Center Loop cost $47 million to construct and allows passengers to travel between the North, South, and Central exhibit halls at the convention center. It spans a total of 1.7 miles and now includes an offshoot tunnel to Resorts World, which is situated directly across Las Vegas Boulevard from the convention center.

The plan is to extend the underground loop system along Las Vegas Boulevard to downtown Las Vegas, with Vegas Loop stations planned at Allegiant Stadium, UNLV, and eventually the Harry Reid International Airport.

The Boring Company may be adding a UNLV stop to the Vegas Loop
