Boring Company

The Boring Company is Elon Musk’s tunnel-boring venture. The company began as a hole in the ground of the SpaceX parking lot, and is now trying to win over major cities by touting tunnels as a way of relieving traffic congestion. The company is in various stages of working with Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Chicago, and others to build tunnels that will take electric, autonomous vehicles from one site to another. Though initially The Boring Company sounded like a joke when Musk announced its existence on Twitter, the company appears to be very real — or at least, the Not A Flamethrowers it made are. Many of the questions about the company’s future center on environmental reviews and other kinds of regulatory paperwork. Can Musk win over local governments like he won over NASA?
