It’s 111 degrees outside, and guests inside Resorts World’s District shopping area trickle toward the hotel’s Vegas Loop station. “On a day like today,” one man tells an attendant at the top of the escalator, “I’ll pay for a ride to just get across the street.”
The hotel’s guests and visitors can now bypass Las Vegas Boulevard’s crosswalk, and instead take an underground Tesla ride to get across the street to the Convention Center. Resorts World’s station recently became the first to open outside of the Las Vegas Convention Center Loop.
In 2019, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority invested $52 million to construct the Convention Center’s tunnels and stations.
