Elon Musk's Boring Company has a solution to the constant traffic problems baseball fans have attending Los Angeles Dodgers games.
His company proposes an approximately 3.6-mile underground tunnel to Dodger Stadium called the Dugout Loop — a high-speed, zero-emissions, underground public transportation system.
The Dugout Loop would "help reduce traffic in Los Angeles by providing a clean and efficient public transportation option."
Instead of fans driving to Chavez Ravine, passengers would load into electric skates that would be able to transport approximately 1,400 fans from East Hollywood to Dodger Stadium in four minutes, avoiding the stop-and-go traffic.
These pod-like electric skates, which could carry 8-16 passengers at a time, would travel up to 150 miles per hour.
"We were excited when The Boring Company came to us with this project. 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," Tucker Kain, the Dodgers' chief financial officer, said in a statement. "We are committed to working with our neighbors and fans as the project moves forward."
The construction of the project would last 14 months, says Musk. Fares are not finalized, but would cost around $1.
