Posting on Twitter on Sunday night, the Boring Company founder and CEO Elon Musk announced the first test tunnel of the ultra-high-speed transit project in Los Angeles.

In August 2013, SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk published a white paper detailing a “Hyperloop,” a super-fast passenger train that would overcome the usual friction by levitating above its track on air-bearings in an enclosed low-pressure tube.
