Musk said the first two tunnel segments would serve as proof-of-concept sites to demonstrate ideas for a traffic-easing network of subterranean tubes whisking passenger-carrying "pods" and individual cars from place to place at high speeds.

"If you build a tunnel in L.A., you can build one anywhere", Musk said, referring to the various challenges the test tunnel would need to overcome in the city, including seismic conditions, methane gas, oil fields, and regulations. He added he has every intent of submitting to a full environmental study for the tunnel network as a whole when the time comes.

Musk, the Silicon Valley high-tech tycoon best known for his Tesla Inc electric auto manufacturer, planned to make a rare personal appearance at a public event in Los Angeles on Thursday night to answer questions from residents about his tunneling plans.

Elon Musk, speaking at an event that pulled back the curtain on The Boring Company's plans, said that the $500 flamethrowers will starting shipping in two weeks.

The billionaire businessman Elon Musk told a cheering crowd that his dream of burrowing a high-speed network of "personalised mass transit" tunnels under Los Angeles could be achieved without disturbance or noise.

Musk revealed the cost of fares for his company's tunneling system under Los Angeles at a Boring Company information session on Thursday, reports CNBC. 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.

Davis said Musk has challenged his team to match the digging pace of a snail (0.03 MPH), and get up to 1/10th of the average walking speed of a human at about 0.3 miles per hour - compared to its current top speed of about 0.003 miles per hour.

It is unknown how fast the "electric skates" will go during tests on the public.

In October 2017, Musk shared the first image of the Boring Company's test tunnel under SpaceX's headquarters. Musk commented, "we're not suggesting this to the exclusion of other approaches".

The big question is how the Boring Company's pitch will go over with the community in the West L.A. neighborhood where the 2.7-mile Sepulveda Boulevard test tunnel is to be built.

"Compared to a flying auto, you don't have to worry about bad weather, you can't see it, hear it, feel it".
