The Boring Company
  • Tesla founder Elon Musk’s boring company is all set to open a two-miles tunnel ride for LA people to travel from Dodger Stadium to LAX in just 10 minutes
  • The boring company’s project of building a hyperloop is almost done with a full-scale transport system for LA people
  • The privately funded LA urban transit will take the pods at a 150 mph speed
  • The proposed plan’s 6.5 inches tunnel will run from SpaceX to West Los Angeles
  • Once it gets operation, the riders will be offered free rides

The man is known for keeping his promises even if he talks about the space or the skies. And the Los Angeles residents are truly blessed to have a mind like this. It is only because of Elon Musk that we know hyperloop. We not only know the concept but are also able to see the glimpse of this visionary technology on the internet. And, if technology like hyperloop gives you goosebumps, this news is going to blow your mind.

Great minds have a philosophy of their own and Tesla is a well-suited example to it. The company is one of the few ventures from Elon Musk that work on future concepts to cover it under the hood of reality. This time it’s not from Tesla but from The Boring Company, Elon Musk’s another venture that is responsible for covering the earth with hyperloop tubes.

Well, the Boring company is not at all boring and presently gaining well-deserved attention for making Elon Musk’s dream of the hyperloop tunnels a reality in a few months for the LA people. The billionaire entrepreneur on Thursday, in a conference, revealed his plans for the loop, "personalized mass transit" system that will take at least 16 people at a speed of 150 miles per hour from downtown Los Angeles to Los Angeles International Airport in an unbelievable time frame of eight-ten minutes in a vacuum tube. And, the additional perk for the riders, the journey will cost just $1. 

 

The privately funded project will expand gradually as per Elon Musk envision. He shared his plans of making the public transport easier for the people with roughly a count of 750 people. " It's the only way we can think of to address the chronic traffic issues in major cities," Elon Musk said in the event while addressing the audience.

Worth mentioning, Elon Musk’s company has spent last few years digging or “boring” underground tunnels in Los Angeles. To expand his vision of creating a new form of transport. Once, the project gets operational, the pedestrians and cyclists will be given prominence to ride the pods that too at much much lower fare than a bus ticket, Musk quoted in the discussion. 

Talking more about the Loop ride, Musk said, the company is adding finishing touches to the tunnel and once completed, the ride will soon be operated for the users.
