Las Vegas seeks to turn big ideas into transportation realities
If you look at the drawing board, the future might be here for transportation in Southern Nevada. Consider:
- Elon Musk’s Boring Co. just got the county OK to expand its “Teslas in Tunnels” loop system from the Las Vegas Convention Center through the tourist corridor.
- Bus rapid transit is moving ahead on Maryland Parkway
- And a high-speed train line linking Las Vegas with Southern California remains in development
A panel of transportation experts discuss all that — plus those traffic jams on Interstate 15 and how to rebuild a transit system after a pandemic.
