The company said on its website that it "looks forward to receiving feedback from residents of the greater Los Angeles area on station locations and system improvements for Phase 2 and beyond".
Elon Musk has somehow found the time to make a bid to build an airport link between Chicago O'Hare Airport and downtown with The Boring Company. The company has filed an excavation permit application for this, which it calls Phase 1 proof-of-concept tunnel and says it would eventually measure 6.5 mi (10.4 km) in length.

But before any passengers can use the system, it will need to be tested extensively.
As for fears of the tunnels collapsing during an natural disaster, Musk said this was not something people would need to worry about. The serial entrepreneur intends to build a multi-layer transportation system that would facilitate high-speed travel by using electric skates. Unlike conventional highway tunnels, Musk proposes that high-speed "sleds" carry cars through the underground system, rather than having cars drive themselves.More news: The red Russian uniforms won't be in Pyeongchang, but the athletes will
"Phase 1 would not be utilized for public transportation until the proof-of-concept tunnel is deemed successful by County government, City government, and The Boring Company." says the company.
These tunnels would essentially function as fast freeways, where vehicles and passenger pods latch onto electric skates and get shuttled along at up to 150 miles per hour (241 km/h).More news: Alaska Airlines to put limits on 'smart bags' starting January 15
"First route will go roughly parallel to the 405 from LAX to 101, with on/offramps every mile or so".
Phase 2 is marked in Blue, showing the full extend of the Boring company's ambitions, from Sherman Oaks in the north to Long Beach Airport in the south, from Dodger Stadium in the east all the way to the coast in the West. It may not be as grandiose as colonizing Mars or even a hyperloop train, but, considering how closer to home it is, it is actually harder to get government approval, much less the public nod.More news: 'The Nutcracker' opens with new scenery in second act
