response to CNN’s report on The Boring Company’s acceptance of Dogecoin as payment for rides on the Loop.
The Vegas Loop
includes the Las Vegas Convention Center Loop as well as any future service extensions.
CNN added that
for now, rides are currently free on Loop but plans will change eventually.
Single rides will cost $1.50
and day passes only $2.50. That’s actually low compared to some public transportation services such as MARTA or DART
