MtM Vegas – Elon Musk Tesla Tunnels Vegas

On this week’s MtM Vegas we have so much to talk about including the controversy over Boring Company’s new Tesla Tunnels at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Before we dive in don’t forget to subscribe to the Miles to Memories YouTube channel to see every episode plus our Vegas reviews, guides and tours!

This Week’s MtM Vegas

This is a bonus second episode for the week! Make sure to checkout our main MtM Vegas epsiode for this week where we discuss Bellagio’s room renovations including their bathtub problem, Vegas going back to 100% and the sale of the Trop.

On this special episode we discuss the brand new tunnels erected at the Las Vegas Convention Center. This week we saw a demo of the Tesla Tunnels (LVCC Loop & Vegas Loop) built by Boring Company. The cars are lower capacity and slower than expected. Did Elon Musk rip-off Las Vegas?

We also go over the entire retail lineup released by Resorts World Las Vegas. Some stores are quirky while others are high-end, but this is proving to be a place you will want to see. Every aspect has seemingly been carefully thought out and I can’t wait to visit this Summer. What do you think?

Elon Musk Tesla Tunnels Vegas – Bottom Line

Overall I am a fan of the new LVCC and Vegas Loop systems, but I’m more of a fan of the promise of what these systems will become instead of what they are delivering now. No doubt Boring didn’t quite give Vegas the system it promised, but I still think it is a win for Las Vegas. What do you think?

  1. Think it’ll solve Vegas’ traffic? Think again when Tesla fan boys all over the country rush to Vegas to try and make a youtube video about x things they love about Tesla.

  2. As a contract worker at lvcc, my biggest problem was getting to my booth from the nonexistent parking areas. I was hoping for a transport system that would benefit everyone. The previous system had a corridor which spanned paradise connecting the former parking lot on convention center road w central hall. Now that is gone and there is a tunnel w cars that crosses the street.
    I am confused as to how this serves the majority of people trying to get around the massive areas of the center?
    Also where do we park?

  3. Yes! This has never made sense from the moment they switched to tesla cars. Mass transit is only useful when it involves MASS numbers of people. The Boring Company is a fraud. They did nothing unique or innovative, and the tunnels are almost useless for anything else. They would be better off putting moving sidewalks in the tunnels.

    • Just because you aren’t able to connect the dots doesn’t make it a fraud. It’s pretty simple, the tunnel serves as the first section of a beta test for eventual rapid underground transportation. It’s much easier to implement FSD in whatever form factor vehicle is used, especially one without a driver. Something this large doesn’t happen overnight.

      Too bad there isn’t a remind me button for us to come back to this in a few years.

    • You expect people to take you seriously using a title of “oddz and endz” like it’s middle school? Yikes.

    • You must be desperate for more traffic and hits Travelbloggerbuzz if you are trolling here George, your blog jumped the shark years ago.

  4. Didn’t listen to the podcast. Even if they send snails through the tunnels it’s going to attract more attention to Vegas which is good for Vegas. I hardly see this as a bad thing. It’s also for all purposes the beta boring tunnel system so it’s not going to be perfect.

    They’ll be implementing Tesla FSD within the vehicles (which over time will be modified for higher capacity without the need for a driver – think back of a limo as the entire vehicle. V9 of beta FSD is coming out within days as well. It’s much closer than people think.

    • And FSD is really where the magic of the tunnels lies. Their real purpose isn’t cars in a tunnel, but when the network gets built out how much more efficient the network of self driving vehicles are when they don’t have to deal with human drivers and traffic flow is instead managed as a whole instead of using fixed points like current traffic management technologies.

      • Yep, and speed limits / constraints above ground will be a non-issue. I don’t understand how people can’t or won’t connect the dots. This will take time, no doubt about it, but Vegas will be better for it.
