One of the goals of the Los Angeles tunnel is to redirect the horrible traffic in the city. The current tunnel will be the first part of a larger tunnel system with big plans for travel as a whole in the City of Angels. As expected, Elon Musk was extremely excited about the first tunnel nearing completion. He took to Instagram stating “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.”

He states that the initial demo rides will be free with the goal of giving cyclists and pedestrian traffic priority. Musk says that the pods for pedestrians will run for less than public transit fare. Cars will also make use of the tunnel, of course.

The concept of the tunnel came to Musk following a drive where he was stuck in LA traffic. If a tunnel can improve traffic in Los Angeles of all places expect them in other major cities that suffer from traffic congestion.
