The Boring Company’s network of tunnels underneath the streets of Las Vegas grew bigger today with the official opening of the Resorts World Las Vegas station.
This is the first stop of more than 50 planned stations for an even larger network of tunnels that will run from McCarran International Airport and up the world famous Las Vegas Strip to the Fremont Street Experience.
Resorts World Las Vegas announced the opening today, calling it a “monumental moment” for both the resort and the city of Las Vegas.
“Today marks a monumental moment not only for our resort, but for Las Vegas. Our passenger station will make a visit to our resort from the Las Vegas Convention Center easier than ever, and eventually connect us to key destinations throughout the city,” said Scott Sibella, president of Resorts World Las Vegas.
A number of photos of the opening were also shared, showing the tunnels will be filled with passengers travelling in the Tesla Model Y and Model X.
If you’re planning on visiting Resorts World Las Vegas to try out the new tunnel, be aware that hours for the station will vary depending on the convention center’s events and calendar.
Earlier this month The Boring Company received unanimous approval from the Las Vegas City Council to expand its Vegas Loop. Until today’s opening, the Vegas Loop consisted of a pair of one-mile long tunnels underneath the Las Vegas Convention Center that have been operating since last year.
The tunnel can transport up to 4,400 people per hour, but once the approximately 34 mile long (54km) network of tunnels with more than 50 stations is complete, it will be able to move 57,000 passengers per hour.
