Elon Musk promises $1 tunnel rides at 240 kmph in LA

The billionaire businessman Elon Musk told a cheering crowd that his dream of burrowing a high-speed network of "personalised mass transit" tunnels under Los Angeles could be achieved without disturbance or noise.

If billionaire Elon Musk's tunnel vision comes to pass, travelers will be able to zip beneath Los Angeles through an underground Loop system at 150 miles per hour for about $1 a ride.

A report from the Culver City manager's office stated: 'The Boring Company has proposed a privately funded human transportation tunnel that would run underneath the Westside of Los Angeles. Opponents say the exemption Boring seeks from a lengthy environmental review of the Los Angeles test tunnel violates state law forbidding such waivers for large-scope projects on a piecemeal basis.

"If you build a tunnel in L.A., you can build one anywhere", Musk said, referring to the various challenges the test tunnel would need to overcome in the city, including seismic conditions, methane gas, oil fields, and regulations.

Still, questions about the test-tunnel project largely dominated the meeting on Thursday night.

Elon Musk touted a partnership between the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Agency (MTA) and The Boring Company, his tunnel-digging venture.

The US Senate just voted to save net neutrality
The FCC's new anti-net-neutrality regulation, which is set to take effect next month, eliminates those prohibitions. And they've been pushing measures in the states that would offer net-neutrality protections within their borders.

Speaking at the time, she said: 'The goal of Boring Company is to alleviate soul-destroying traffic and augment public transit'. Perhaps he'll share more details on this marriage between his two companies - like if LA will be the first city to get one of those spaceports.

A slightly shorter test tunnel is already largely finished underneath the tiny neighboring municipality of Hawthorne, where Boring and SpaceX are both headquartered. Hundreds of entrances were included in this project where passengers in pods could come down to the network of tunnels that will carry them across the city at high speeds.

After users suggested he was joking, Musk clarified: "I am actually going to do this".

The nearly completed dry run is created to make sure plans actually work - if it doesn't, the city can request the tunnel is filled in with concrete or soil.

"You won't even know we exist", Musk said.

"Like a weird little Disney ride in L.A.", Musk, casually dressed in denim, said to laughter and applause.
