- 25-mile expansion approved, creating a 65-mile underground network
- TBC reassures the project will be privately funded, not on taxpayers' dime
- New stations planned at prime locations, including Chinatown and Allegiant Stadium
The Boring Company (TBC), Elon Musk's brainchild, is stoked to announce a major expansion of its underground tunnel network in Las Vegas. With a whopping 25 miles added to the original plan, we're looking at a total of 65 miles of tunnels and 69 stations ready to rock Sin City. Thanks to the Clark County commissioners giving a thumbs up, the Vegas Loop is about to get way more rad.
Chill out, taxpayers – TBC's got you covered. The company reassured the commissioners that they'd foot the entire bill for this ambitious project. Still, one commissioner, Marilyn Kirkpatrick, expressed concerns about the transportation system's focus on tourists, leaving resort and casino employees in the dust. No worries, though! TBC plans to expand its network to residential areas near the strip, so everybody can get in on the action.
Currently, the Vegas Loop is a modest 2-mile stretch with five stops around the Las Vegas Convention Center. But TBC's got big dreams, man! They're planning to connect this underground network to all the hotspots – Harry Reid International Airport, Allegiant Stadium, downtown Las Vegas, and even Los Angeles.
So, where will these new stations pop up? TechCrunch reports that they'll be spread across town, from Las Vegas Boulevard near the airport, to Chinatown, Town Square Las Vegas, and Harmon Square. As this project continues to grow, the Vegas Loop is about to become the grooviest way to cruise around the city.
