Elon Musk says he's planning to offer the public free rides through a tunnel he bored under a Los Angeles suburb to test a new type of transportation system.

Elon Musk has announced the opening date of The Boring Company's first rapid transit tunnel.

Musk tweeted on Monday (NZT) that his aspiring underground transportation project would open its first test tunnel in Hawthorne, south of the city's global airport.

Privately held Boring Co has been promoting its plans for tunnels that would allow high-speed travel between cities.

The tunnel runs about 2 miles under the streets of Hawthorne, where Musk's SpaceX headquarters is located.

In May, Musk said using the future tunnelling system, dubbed the Loop, would cost as little as $1 per fare. It's unclear how Musk will achieve the top speeds of 760 miles (1,220 kilometers) per hour he has touted for a hyperloop tunnel, and the mode of transport that will be used there.

While Musk is known for his towering ambition and zealous breakthroughs, the tech billionaire also has a reputation for over promising on meeting benchmarks. The tech tycoon seems to have agreed to the thought and replied: "That is correct".
