Sneak Peek: Elon Musk says LA-area test tunnel nearly complete

Kerry GarnerMay 12, 2018

In addition, he claims that that the tunnel is "almost done", and "pending final regulatory approvals, we will be offering free rides to the public in a few months". Musk posted ideas about the tunnel in December of 2016, tweeting "Traffic is driving me nuts" and that he was going to "build a tunnel". The actual objective of the Boring Company is to dig tunnels to help people get out of the traffic many sit in daily.

Billionaire Elon Musk says he's nearly completed a tunnel under a Los Angeles suburb to test a novel transportation system that would scoot commuters underground on electric sleds called skates. "Strong support from the public, elected officials and regulators is critical to success", says the real-world Iron Man. "Super huge thanks to everyone that helped with this project".

"Awesome! Just awesome! You achieve wonderful things!" wrote another.

Those free rides could begin as soon as a month from now.

As laid out by the Los Angeles Times, the Boring Company's plan traces a 2.7-mile route that lies 30 to 70 feet below ground.

Elon Musk on Thursday posted footage of a prototype vehicle tunnel bored underneath Los Angeles, saying it would be available for people to use in a matter of months. Musk has said prior that they can outpace a jet engine.

The SpaceX and Tesla chief established the company just over a year ago - after getting frustrated with the traffic he faces on his daily commute into the city from Bel-Air.
