Elon Musk wants to build a tunnel to Dodger Stadium

Billionaire Elon Musk wants to play a part in solving traffic problems that have long plagued Dodger Stadium and Los Angeles.

Musk’s Boring Company has proposed a 3.6-mile underground tunnel that would “help reduce traffic in Los Angeles by providing a clean and efficient public transportation option.”

Fans would load into pods that could carry 8-16 passengers at a time and travel at 150 miles an hour. Roughly 1,400 fans from East Hollywood would be able to reach Dodger Stadium in roughly four minutes opposed to the stop and go traffic that has long been an issue.

“We were excited when The Boring Company came to us with this project. Whether it is flying overhead in an aerial transit system or bypassing traffic through an underground tunnel, we are always looking for innovative ways to make it easier for Dodgers fans to get to a game,” Tucker Kain, the Dodgers’ chief financial officer, said in a statement. “We are committed to working with our neighbors and fans as the project moves forward.

Construction of the program would take a year and fares for using the pod system would cost roughly $1.
