Once operational, pedestrians and cyclists will be given priority to ride in its pods, for less than the price of a bus ticket, Musk says.
Musk confessed that The Boring Company, which was created as an infrastructure and tunnel firm, faced "delivery challenges" when it came to shipping the devices loaded with propane but claimed to have found a solution by delivering the products in Boring Company delivery vans.

Musk's proposal involved building a test tunnel ranging about 2.7 miles (4.3 kilometers) which would run into headwinds from neighborhood organizations. Pods would use on-ramps and off-ramps rather than running like a subway line. A city council committee granted the Boring Company an exemption to a state environmental review - a review that can be a very long process.
