Las Vegas's tourism authority is expected to approve a $48 million contract with the Boring Company today for an underground transit system connecting the convention center to... the convention center. 

Elon Musk's ideas are ideally suited for Vegas, which already has many examples of very short, ride-like transit systems that connect places to each other without creating a comprehensive network. 

As anyone who's been to CES knows, the convention center is huge—and about to get bigger! But it will still only be a 20-minute walk max anywhere in the convention center you want to go.
