Los Angeles mayor sounds open to Elon Musk’s tunneling plan

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, transportation

Elon Musk’s concept of solving traffic congestion by digging networks of tunnels may have a fan in Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.

Speaking about the city’s transit issues Sunday morning on ABC 7‘s “Eyewitness Newsmakers,” Garcetti mentioned the possibility of tunneling: “Like many other cities have, I’d love to see maybe even with the new tunneling technology that people like Elon Musk is looking at, whether we could have a quick and direct route from LAX to Union Station.”

    A revolutionary plan to transport people …Underground? Wow…great idea…Some 150 years after the original implempentation. But seriously, you guys need to start heavily investing in Public Transptation, such as Underground trains. Lose the dependency on cars to begin with.
