Elon Musk overhauls Boring Company concept to focus on mass transit
Remember Elon Musk’s plan to dig a massive web of traffic-beating tunnels underneath Los Angeles? The billionaire entrepreneur’s The Boring Company posted a concept video last year that showed cars entering tunnels on skates, where they hurtled 130 mph toward their destination. Now, that plan appears to be getting a huge makeover. Musk tweeted Friday to say that the tunnels Boring Company digs will not — at least at first — allow cars to travel through them. Instead, it will focus on providing mass transportation. “It’s a matter of courtesy & fairness. If someone can’t afford a car, they should go first,” he wrote. So, the tunnels will “prioritize pedestrians & cyclists over cars.”
