When the Boring Company just announced, Elon Musk talked about the rapid transport of cars through the underground tunnels that would allow to unload transport arteries of megacities.
However, a couple of months ago it became known that The Boring Company he changed his mind and at the initial stage will focus primarily on pedestrians. They will be transported by a special bus Loop buses seat up to 16 people.
I think this was done due to the fact that for such a transport system with cars need thousands of elevators throughout the city. This is not only expensive and time consuming, but also significantly more complex to implement, and also requires a larger number of permits and so on.
In General, while in favor of pedestrians. As it became known thanks to the conference of the Boring Company, the first line will connect the airport of Los Angeles the city centre. More not yet spoken, and not the fact that it is already solved. Interestingly, the ticket for Loop (or whatever they will call it) will cost only 1 dollar! At least it was on the above route. But we know how Musk is able to dump, so to worry about the prices, I think not. To move the capsule through the tunnels will be at a speed of about 240 km/h, which is impressive. The entire route will take about eight minutes. I think the first time intermediate stops would not be at all or they will be extremely small. Still more holes in the ground, as already mentioned, entails a lot of difficulties.
Also, Musk said that the engineers put The Boring Company to increase the speed of tunnelling. If I understand correctly, now it is about 4.8 m/h. at First its going to increase 10 times, and then another order of magnitude. But when you can achieve such values, did not elaborate.
By the way, if you do not know, The Boring Company also plans to sell the bricks. They will be created from rocks obtained in the process of digging tunnels. However, as you might guess, the bricks are of clay, and of the more durable rocks. Musk claims that they are able to withstand heavy loads and are suitable for the construction of earthquake resistant buildings.
