Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) Chairman Hyperloop Is Happening

  • Tesla Inc. (TSLA) chairman and CEO Elon Musk’s idea to build an underground high-speed transportation system could happen by the end of the year.
  • Musk took to Twitter on Thursday to announce The Boring Company, a tunnel-drilling company he founded, had received “verbal” government approval to build an underground Hyperloop between New York City and Washington, D.C. that could carry goods and people between the two cities in less than 30 minutes.
  • A Boring Company spokesman confirmed the “verbal support” and said the company expects formal approval will happen to break ground by the end of the year. Neither Musk nor the spokesman specified who gave the verbal approval.
  • “The Boring Company has had a number of promising conversations with local, state and federal government officials,” the spokesman said in an email. “With a few exceptions, feedback has been very positive, and we have received verbal support from key government decision-makers for tunneling plans, including a Hyperloop route from New York to Washington DC.
  • We look forward to future conversations with the cities and states along this route and we expect to secure the formal approvals necessary to break ground later this year.”
