Elon Musk To Make Public Appearance, Answer Questions On LA Tunnel Plan

The Brentwood Residents Coalition and the Sunset Coalition are suing Los Angeles, claiming that the tunnel is really part of a planned transit system and should therefore the city should not have granted it exemption from standard environmental reviews. 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. The tunnels would be small and no bigger than parking size, located throughout the city. If the Boring Company wins all the regulatory go-aheads that are required, Musk's past record of hard-to-imagine achievements may be a big reason why.

On Thursday night at 7 p.m.in Los Angeles, those lucky enough to have snapped up free tickets early will be able to see Elon Musk speaking at the Leo Baeck Temple and discussing The Boring Company's tunneling and hyperloop plans for the city.

Musk first had the idea to build congestion-dodging tunnels under LA while stuck in traffic in December 2016.

Fares for Loop could cost as little as $1 per person, Musk suggested, though the actual cost will likely depend on a number of factors, and require input from multiple local and regional agencies.

Musk has claimed the tunnel trip along his proposed route will take five minutes, compared to 45 minutes driving in normal LA traffic.

A slightly shorter test tunnel is already largely finished underneath the tiny neighboring municipality of Hawthorne, where Boring and SpaceX are both headquartered.
