Musk - who is also the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX - posted a short video on Instagram of a trip through the Loop's tunnel.

While the tunnel's "demo system rides" are free, people will eventually have to pay to travel in the pods, though Musk said the price for pedestrians and cyclists would be lower than a bus ticket. Even the Boring Company is making tunnels below LA as an easy manner of bypassing traffic totally, and also the first 1 is nearly finished.

In typical Musk fashion, he didn't release other details.

In the video, the camera flies backward through the tunnel, passing a few workmen and stopping at a complicated set of traffic lights before thrusting forward again.

Musk describes a system in which vehicles would descend via elevators into tunnels and move on electrically powered sleds. Musk's enthusiasm for the project stems from his frustration with L.A. traffic, and he's made claims about building a tunnel between Sherman Oaks and LAX by the end of this year, but that seems very unlikely. "Am going to build a tunnel boring machine and just start digging.", he wrote.

United States cities have largely halted the building of new tunnels and subways due to high costs that can exceed $1 billion per mile.

"Super huge thanks to everyone that helped with this project. Strong support from public, elected officials & regulators is critical to success", said Musk.
