    I don't see how he doesn't get sued by the city. It is NOTHING like his bid was when they handed over millions of dollars. It is like me taking tens of millions of dollars to build an office building and delivering a Popsicle stick house. And keeping all the money.

    Wait. How is this better than a subway? Instead of a few trains, you have hundreds of cars each capable of breaking down and blocking the tunnel. It would use more power and be slower.

    You "reporters" are insanely gullible. In a world where subways have existed for more than a century, the "problem" this concept is "solving" simply doesn't exist. Trains can move roughly 10 to 18 times as many people as a lane of traffic, which SHOULD carry nearly 2,000 people per hour, which is far above and beyond this loopy thing. It's obvious that this is nothing more than a ridiculously expensive gimmick to sell Teslas. Buy a Tesla if you want, I have NO problem with that, but if you're going to spend tens or hundreds of millions of dollars to poke holes under my city, there'd better be some trains in them because there's no room to park all those damned Teslas downtown!

All of that with an hourly capacity that's equivalent to 4 subway trains, i.e. what a decent subway line transports in 8 minutes at rush hour.

    I swear, all you miserable haters don't want anything to progress. It's really sad.

      @Elk even if it had all those safety measures in place you would find something else to complain about.

      @Jacob McKarthern I agree with you on every point except for the fact that he came from nothing I'm pretty sure his parents were fairly rich.

      ​@69 All I know is that it's very bizarre. This Musk hate is just pathetic... especially coming from people who are supposedly fans of scientific progress. Musk is one of the only people on the planet who is actually trying to innovate on a large scale, with the means, drive, and talent to do so. He came from nothing to build companies like Tesla and SpaceX from the ground up - it's amazing. To hear people call him a "con man" is just so amazingly stupid, it's hard to fathom.

      This isn't progress. It's one step forward two steps back. Yes, underground tunnels a good. They've existed for years. This is a more efficient method, so that's good. But removing all safety measures is GOING to get someone killed. It's not even that hard of a fix. Just make them slightly bigger, run a 2nd smaller tunnel for people next to it, and supply fire extinguishers phones and other safety precautions. You know, the things that every other tunnel does. In its current state it really should violate some sort of safety protocol

      I know all these thunderf00t and common skeptics fans. One thing I've noticed is most people on the internet that hate Elon Musk are either European or Australian.
