This is what our future transport system could look like.
This vehicle is the newest addition of Elon Musk's Boring Company plan. The Boring Company is planning an underground urban transportation system called Loop. Older animations showed only cars utilising the Loop.
New plans prioritise transporting pedestrians and cyclists.
Loop will transport vehicles on electric skates at speeds over 200kph.
Adjusting The Boring Company plan: all tunnels & Hyperloop will prioritize pedestrians & cyclists over cars— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) March 9, 2018
Older animations showed only cars utilizing the Loop.
Will still transport cars, but only after all personalized mass transit needs are met. It’s a matter of courtesy & fairness. If someone can’t afford a car, they should go first.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) March 9, 2018
Some said it works like a bus, Musk agreed.
I guess you could say it’s a 150 mph, underground, autonomous, electric bus that automatically switches between tunnels and lifts. So, yes, a bus.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) March 9, 2018
Elon Musk's proposed, high-speed transit systems, Loop and Hyperloop, are designed to decrease traffic congestion and give public transit users a faster option than traditional train or bus systems.
