LVCVA board votes to move forward with ‘people mover’ project

Local News

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority board voted 8 – 3 to continue talks with Elon Musk’s The Boring Company for an underground, high-speed people mover.

Board members Michele Fiore, Carolyn Goodman and Tom Jenkin voted no. They were not against the project, but against the timing of the selection process.

The LVCVA will continue talks with The Boring Company to design and build a tunnel transportation system under the convention center.

Contract negotiations could be voted on in June.

The mile-long express transit system would move conventioneers around the massive convention complex and could — one day — include other areas of Las Vegas. 

The estimated cost is between $35 million and $55 million. The Boring Company was the least expensive proposal of the six companies interested in building the project.
