  • Elon Musk Shows off almost Finished Boring Company Tunnel

The inaugural Boring Company tunnel underneath Los Angeles is nearly complete, according to a post published by Elon Musk on Instagram Thursday night. "It shall be called "The Boring Company." The tweet followed Musk's earlier comments on the advantages of tunnels, calling them a "simple and obvious" way to fix excess traffic. The future price for a ride will be a little lower than a bus ticket.

Because The Boring Co. only recently obtained excavation permits for another section in West L.A., the video presumably shows a two-mile test track that has been under construction near SpaceX's headquarters in Hawthorne for the past year.

He continued: "Pending final regulatory approvals, we will be offering free rides to the public in a few months".

Musk uploaded a brief clip to his Instagram showing a chunk of the tunnel.

Musk's Boring Company has been digging the underground tunnels beneath the United States' second-largest city in a project to shift traffic through the heavily congested region. "Strong support from public, elected officials & regulators is critical to success", he wrote. Musk may be counting on his huge fan base to help with the tricky task of getting the tunnel cleared for takeoff.

Elon Musk isn't one for thinking small or cheap, so his solution to beating the traffic was neither.

In typical Musk fashion, he didn't release other details.

Musk describes a system, which The Boring Company calls "Loop", where vehicles would descend via elevators into tunnels and move on electrically powered sleds.
