LAS VEGAS — Resorts World Las Vegas in June unveiled its Las Vegas Convention Center Loop passenger station, providing trade show and convention exhibitors and attendees quick and direct underground access to the nearby Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) in all-electric Teslas.
The LVCC Loop is an underground public transportation system boasting zero emissions as it transports convention and trade show exhibitors and attendees nonstop, connecting the LVCC’s West Hall, which debuted in 2021, with the existing North, Central and South halls, and now looping in Resorts World, as well. The system is designed to transport more than 4,400 event attendees per hour across the LVCC campus.
“Today marks a monumental moment not only for our resort, but for Las Vegas,” Scott Sibella, president of Resorts World Las Vegas, said. “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.”
The Resorts World Las Vegas passenger station is the first of over 55 stations anticipated to form the Vegas Loop, which includes the LVCC Loop and aims to eventually transport thousands of passengers per hour throughout the resort corridor. Elon Musk’s The Boring Company is building its Vegas Loop beneath the Strip’s main artery. The transportation system, which is still under construction in phases, is slated to have future service extensions along the Strip and Downtown Las Vegas along 29 miles of tunnels.
“Resorts World Las Vegas strives to transform the way people experience Las Vegas, and this offering does just that,” Sibella said. “We are proud to partner with The Boring Company on what we believe to be the future of travel.”
Hours of operation for the Resorts World Las Vegas Passenger Station will vary based upon the LVCC trade shows, events and convention calendar.
“Connecting Resorts World’s property directly to the Las Vegas Convention Center ensures trade show attendees and exhibitors will spend less time in traffic and more time networking and making business deals,” Steve Hill, president and CEO of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA), said. “The Resorts World station is the latest step in the development of this new game-changing transportation solution in Las Vegas.”
The LVCC Loop opened in April 2021 for the Mecum Motorcycle Auction and has operated at all subsequent conventions and trade shows. At SEMA 2021, the LVCC Loop transported between 24,000 and 26,000 passengers per day. At CES 2022, the LVCC Loop transported between 14,000 and 17,000 passengers per day, with an average ride time of less than two minutes and average wait time of less than 15 seconds.
