Elon Musk's Boring Company (how many companies does this guy have now?) Has officially completed his first Los Angeles tunnel and paved the way for pods to propel pedestrians and cyclists at high speeds.
Musk shared the news from the completed 2.7-mile tunnel through social media with a timelapse video posted on Instagram showing a ride from start to finish.
The completion of the tunnel is an important milestone for The Boring Company, but pending regulatory approvals. In the Instagram post, Musk thanked for "strong support from public, elected officials and regulators."
If approved, Musk says the tunnel will offer "free public transport in a few months" (that's demo ] rides for free). Regular fares are "less than the cost of a bus ticket".
Finally, Musk reminded everyone of the purpose of the tunnel: the transport of pedestrians and cyclists. Originally, Musk had shared a video about using the tunnel to turn cars around the subway, but said in March that cars would turn their backs on pedestrians and cyclists.
