Boring Co shows off 'disturbingly long' test tunnel in California

by Justin King

Demonstration rides will take just a few minutes, mostly spent accelerating and decelerating.

Elon Musk has posted another highlight video for Boring Co's test tunnel beneath the streets of Hawthorne, California.

"Walked full length of Boring Co tunnel under LA tonight. Disturbingly long," Musk wrote on Twitter. "On track for opening party Dec 10. Will be very one-dimensional."

The tunnel starts at a SpaceX parking lot and passes under 120th Street for less than two miles. The company is building a Loop Lift in a residential home garage to show the potentially small size of access elevators.

"Looking forward, one could have a lift in the basement of every office building, allowing extremely convenient commutes," the company envisions.

The December 10 party will only provide rides via invitation. Each ride will take just a few minutes, mostly spent accelerating and decelerating.
