Elon Musk’s tunneling startup, the Boring Co. has begun digging test sites for its hyperloop plan – a tunnel-based transportation system.
The Boring Co.’s “urban loop” would have thousands of small stations, each about the size of a parking space, where people can hop on and off, getting passengers closer to their destinations and “blend seamlessly into the fabric of a city, rather than a small number of big stations like a subway.”
