Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Elon Musk promises $1 rides in LA transit tunnels

Los Angeles is known as one of the most congested cities in the world despite having the vast highway system. It is quite surprising that this scale of mega-city has just six metro lines with 93 stations, used only by some 360,000 passengers daily on average.

Elon Musk, the founder and CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, has been initiating innovations to bring once-astronomically-expensive projects on and above ground to commodity, such as electric cars and space traveling. Now, he is digging the ground.

His infrastructure and tunnel construction company is trying to construct alternative urban transportation by a series of underground roadways that ferry vehicles to and from destinations using high-speed electric tracks. He chose his hometown LA as the testing ground for his new venture. He believes the company can build tunnels at much faster and economically using his tunnel boring machine (TBM).  

Surely, innovations slash the price and make the dream happen.

Enjoy reading and learn what this high-speed underground transportation system is like.
