Elon Musk’s Boring Company proposes one-way, 3.6 mile tunnel to Dodger Stadium

Elon Musk's Boring Company wants to alleviate some of that pain.

On Wednesday, Musk's Boring Company announced the Dugout Loop via a tweet that included a link to the project on the company's website.

The Boring Company is projecting that, when ready, 1,500 fans per game can take the company's underground high-speed vehicles through the tunnel called "The Dugout Loop", instead of sitting in their cars in traffic.

The underground line is the latest eye-opening - or eye-rolling - concept introduced by Musk's The Boring Company. If you ask Elon Musk, it's simple: Dig a tunnel. For context, Dodger Stadium's capacity is 56,000.

"The Boring Company has made technical progress much faster than expected and has chose to make its first tunnel in Los Angeles an operational one, hence Dugout Loop!" it said in its online project description.

He said the Assad government has a right to defend itself against opposition attacks and Moscow will support those operations. Lavrov noted that United States sanctions, including those against Turkey, undermine all principles of global trade.


Dugout Loop will complement existing public transportation systems and provide an all-electric and affordable option that will transport baseball fans and concertgoers directly to the Dodger Stadium in less than four minutes. Still, the point is likely not to remake what game time at Dodger Stadium looks like but to test the physical and operational capabilities of this brand-new subway scheme.

Finally, the project will be "100 percent privately funded and will require zero taxpayer dollars", the post claims. The Boring Company expects the project will take fewer than 14 months to complete.

The projected fare for riders is roughly $1, but that number is not finalized. Rides will be reserved in advance, like a movie theater booking.

"Whether it is flying overhead in an aerial transit system or bypassing traffic through an underground tunnel, we are always looking for innovative ways to make it easier for Dodgers fans to get to a game", he told the Los Angeles Times. From the company's press release: "the Initial Study (IS) and Notice of Preparation (NOP) for the Dugout Loop process will be available for public review from August 16, 2018 to September 17, 2018". The company says it's working with consultants as well as the City of L.A. Bureau of Engineering on an environmental impact report that'll touch on all the challenges involved in digging dozens of feet beneath Los Angeles' streets.
