Elon Musk promises $1 tunnel rides at 240 kmph in LA

Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk will headline a town-hall style meeting in Brentwood on Thursday, May 17, where the public will have the opportunity to ask the visionary himself about his plans to build a futuristic, all-electric transit system underneath Los Angeles. The founder and CEO of The Boring Company envisions of creating a new form of transportation to get out of the nasty Los Angeles traffic he famously complains about.
The Boring Company is an infrastructure and tunnel construction company founded by Musk in late 2016.
Elon Musk wants to use the biggest rocket SpaceX has ever built to transport humans anywhere on Earth in under an hour. "It's the first step toward a 60-mile tunnel network across the city".
The Boring Company plans to excavate a 2.7-mile (4.4-km) passage below a stretch of the congested Sepulveda Boulevard corridor on the West Side of Los Angeles.
Musk was joined by The Boring Company director Steve Davis.
Musk said that the full-fledged project would involve a tunnel along the Los Angeles' scandalously busy 405 Freeway where the traffic differed between the seventh and the eighth circles of hell.

IPL 2018: Mumbai Indians win a thriller with Bumrah's heroics
Most of Mumbai's problems were down to Tye's unique skill - swerving knuckle balls - which forced them to reassess their innings. It is a shame that Kings XI Punjab have the Purple Cap and Orange Cap holders by a distance and the team has had dismal results.
The idea is to pack at least 100 passengers per flight on a super powerful rocket that Musk has dubbed the BFR - which is about two-and-a-half times the size of the Falcon Heavy rocket that put a Tesla into space in February (accidentally overshooting the orbit of Mars).
Musk explained that the company has made progress on its project by building a pilot tunnel at its SpaceX complex in Hawthorne.
The lawsuit from the Brentwood Residents Association and the Sunset Coalition alleges city officials violated the California Environmental Quality Act, which "can't be evaded by chopping large projects into smaller pieces that taken individually appear to have no significant environmental impacts". "It wouldn't be possible to have a subway tunnel in L.A., which a lot of people do not realize exists, but there is a subway in L.A.", Musk said.
"Compared to a flying vehicle, you don't have to worry about bad weather, you can't see it, hear it, feel it".
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.
