Elon Musk offers LA Inhabitants Freedom from Traffic Jams

Elon Musk is simply unstoppable. The billionaire genius and head of both SpaceX and Tesla Motors is now busy finding solutions to LA’s traffic problems.

He has promised the citizens of the City of Angels $1 rides on his Loop transporter tunnel. This is possible thanks in no small part to his Boring Company.

The Loop consists of electric pods that can convey up to 16 passengers from one place to another in one go. A ride from downtown LA to the LAX Airport would take just 8 minutes and cost $1. This is almost like a dream coming true in reality.

A seminar held by Musk had him giving guarantees to the general public that his tunnel and pods would not destroy the beauty or stability of Los Angeles.

The pre-existing traffic routes and byways would not be affected at all. Musk’s Boring Company is known for its special hat and flamethrower. Yet the biggest challenge for it is to win the public’s approval for renovating LA’s public transit system.

The presentation which Musk held recently took place within a synagogue. Musk spoke of how while airborne vehicles were still a far-off dream, tunnels were, on the contrary, a possibility.

Musk explained how the Loop pods would meld into the general traffic plan of the city. He even spoke of how his company would look to the betterment and revamping of pre-existing transport systems.

A 2.7-mile test tunnel will be the first thing the Boring Company begins work on. As for the funds that will get invested in this venture, they will all come from private sources.

The Boring Company has already collected cash amounting to $113 million. Musk joked that his plans were to make this whole transport system a fun way to get from here to there for commuters. They could even bring their flamethrowers along with them if they preferred, he said with a smile.
