During a Thursday night session that lasted almost an hour, Musk and the Boring Company's project leader, Steve Davis, laid out their case for building a network of tunnels 30 feet or more beneath Los Angeles, starting with a 2.7-mile "proof of concept" dig.
Elon Musk has also suggested building such hyperloop tunnels in other cities outside of Los Angeles like New York, Baltimore, Washington D.C., and Chicago.
Musk reiterated the company vision of having miniature "pods" that would transport up to 16 people across the underground system for just $1 per passenger.
The billionaire's tunnel-digging firm, The Boring Company, is adding the finishing touches to its first ever track, ahead of its opening.

In January, it emerged that Musk's plans to dig a tunnel under Los Angeles to beat the city's notorious traffic had come a step closer to reality.

The Boring Company has already built a shorter tunnel in nearby Hawthorne, where SpaceX's headquarters is located.
"Compared to a flying vehicle, you don't have to worry about bad weather, you can't see it, hear it, feel it".
