When Elon Musk isn't overseeing Tesla, he has SpaceX and the to head up. While the first two make a lot of news on their own, the Boring Company is only now starting to steal the spotlight in some respects.
And the latest nugget of information could really transform how those in Las Vegas get around the city. Replying to a Twitter user speaking of the possibility Boring Company tunnels could find a place at the Las Vegas airport and other spots around downtown Vegas, the CEO said such projects are "looking likely." Aside from the airport to downtown tunnel loop, tunnels could also make stops at the Wynn resort and Resorts World.
The Boring Company put its wild transportation idea to the test in the real world with a test tunnel. Shortly thereafter, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority selected Musk's pet project to. Earlier this year, we learned the Boring Company for the system that will connect the original center and a newly expanded hall.
Expanding the tunnels to connect the airport and downtown Vegas would be one of the company's largest missions yet. The Boring Company secured work atin the past, though news on the project has been quiet. The Vegas tunnels have, by far, attracted the most attention, mostly because they're actually on a path toward completion.
When the first tunnel system opens,, riders will board and travel at speeds up to 155 mph 40 feet underground. Walking the distance in the Las Vegas convention center takes 15 minutes, but a Boring Company ride will cut the trip to just two minutes.
The Boring Company did not immediately return a request for comment.
