The ‘Vegas Loop,’ a dedicated tunnel system exclusively designed for Teslas, offers a convenient subterranean route beneath Las Vegas to evade traffic congestion.
Elon Musk’s The Boring Company spearheaded the design of this innovative tunnel, specifically tailored for Tesla vehicles, aiming to address the primary concern of circumventing traffic snarls.
Accessible to everyone, the tunnel isn’t intended for personal car usage. Its design, primarily accommodating Tesla Model Y vehicles, operates akin to a subway system. Passengers can access the tunnel, purchase a ticket or subscribe, and then utilize a fleet of Tesla cars to transport them from one point to another.
Operating similarly to a subway, albeit with Tesla vehicles instead of trains, the pricing structure varies based on the distance traveled. For instance, a 2.8-mile journey from Downtown Las Vegas to the Las Vegas Convention Center is priced at $5—a notably more economical option compared to taxi fares for the same route.
For longer distances, such as commuting from Downtown Las Vegas to Harry Reid International Airport (formerly known as McCarran Airport), the fare amounts to $12, ensuring an expedited and hassle-free travel experience.
In essence, the Vegas Loop presents an alternative transportation solution that leverages Tesla’s vehicles to navigate beneath the city, bypassing traffic congestion and offering commuters an efficient means of traversing key locations within Las Vegas.
