During a recent visit to Las Vegas for the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2023), we were offered a test ride through the LVCC Loop. The Loop runs underground from points in the Las Vegas Convention Center to Resorts World. It saved us 20-25 minutes walking time to get from one side of the convention center to the other. Plus, it allowed me a few minutes off my feet.
From the Offical Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority:
“The Vegas Loop at Las Vegas Convention Center provides fast and convenient transportation for convention and trade show attendees across the LVCC campus, connecting the new West Hall with the existing campus (North/Central/South Halls). The Vegas Loop at Las Vegas Convention Center has officially opened the Resorts World passenger station, providing direct access to and from the Las Vegas Convention Center. Four passenger stations (see map below) offer convenient access between key LVCC destinations and nearby transportation connections.
Typical walk time between the West Hall to the existing North/Central Hall can take up to 25 minutes. The same trip on LVCC Loop takes approximately 2 minutes.
The system is designed to transport more than 4,400 convention attendees per hour across the campus. Passengers will load into vehicles capable of holding three people, with future vehicles capable of holding up to 12 people.”
This mode of transportation not only is convenient for conference attendees, it also cuts down on the crowds and foot traffic from hall to hall. Built by The Boring Company, plans are to expande The Loop 29 miles with more than 51 stops.
Loop is an all-electric, zero-emissions, high-speed underground public transportation system in which passengers are transported to their destination with no intermediate stops. Also known as “Teslas in Tunnels!”
