Elon Musk said Thursday that the the Boring Company’s tunnel under Los Angeles is “almost done” and pending regulatory approval will be offering free rides in “a few months.”
The 2-mile tunnel was proposed to originate in Hawthorne and extend to the Los Angeles International Airport.
The Boring Company plans to dig a network of tunnels for a high-speed transportation system. The company has teased images of vehicles it plans to build for transporting people and cargo through the tunnels and recently purchased $400,000 worth of electric motors and batteries from Tesla.
First Boring Company tunnel under LA almost done! Pending final regulatory approvals, we will be offering free rides to the public in a few months. Super huge thanks to everyone that helped with this project. Strong support from public, elected officials & regulators is critical to success. As mentioned in prior posts, once fully operational (demo system rides will be free), the system will always give priority to pods for pedestrians & cyclists for less than the cost of a bus ticket.

The Los Angeles tunnel is considered proof-of-concept for Musk’s underground transportation system. The company has plans to dig tunnels connecting Washington DC to New York and LA to San Francisco projects. The company has said that the East Coast route will take just 29 minutes.
