The tunnel was originally conceived for cars, but then Musk changed the concept in favor of pedestrians, public transport and cyclists. The entrepreneur said that the tunnel will be opened on December 10: on the first day it will be free, but the next entry will cost a dollar.
They will still move platforms with cars through the tunnel under Los Angeles, but gradually the capsules that Musk spoke about will gradually begin to be used in it.
The company also has permission from the authorities for a tunnel between Washington and Baltimore 16.5 kilometers long. In addition, The Boring Company intends to build a tunnel in Chicago.
The tunnel under Los Angeles began to build in January 2017. Then Elon Musk noted that “he has no idea what he is doing.”
