ELON MUSK'S BORING BUS TO TRANSPORT PASSENGERS THROUGH URBAN LOOPS

Via a three-choice poll on Twitter, The Boring Company CEO, Elon Musk, asked his followers what their perspectives were on Hyperloop:

a: hyperloop is an impossible pipedream.


b: hyperloop is a stupid hole in the ground.
c: hyperloop is both, an impossible pipedream and a stupid hole in the ground.

62% went for answer c. This cheeky tweet follows a far-less-sarcastic tweet, one day earlier, on March 9, in which Musk announced a redesigned loop system – a system which will now allegedly begin with a 150 mph bus, giving priority to pedestrians without cars. It is a complete 180 from his initial Hyperloop plan, which gave priority to cars, more specifically Tesla cars.

"Will still transport cars," Musk tweeted, "But only after all personalised mass transit needs are met. It’s a matter of courtesy and fairness. If someone can’t afford a car, they should go first." he then described the outcome of this plan – a faster, underground transit system with 1000s of stops, that can drop riders off quicker and closer to their destination.

Pedestrians first. Tesla's second.
