Elon Musk’s company launched a high-speed tunnel Loop Transportation System

Elon Musk’s The Boring Company has launched a four-kilometer high-speed tunnel in Las Vegas.

The tunnel is designed for electric vehicles that can accelerate up to 320 km/h in the direction of travel. Apparently, the first part of the Las Vegas underground network of tunnels with three stations will serve as a test site for the city’s future automated underground transportation system. The tunnel cost $52.5 million.

The Boring Company plans to increase the number of stations to 43 and transport up to 51 thousand passengers per hour.

However, early reviews from visitors to the tunnel were negative. Instead of the declared 240 km/h, the car’s speed barely exceeded 60 km/h. It was planned that the 45-minute trip will turn into a two-minute trip thanks to Tesla.

All the way – more than a kilometer – passengers covered three times slower than promised, they also could not accelerate normally and constantly interfered with each other.

However, in the future, cars should start driving autonomously in tunnels, which will increase speed and improve user experience.
