Elon Musk took to Twitter on Sunday to show everyone how a ride down the Los Angeles speed transit system built by his Boring Company will look like.
The test tunnel measures two miles and it will be officially opened to the public on December 10th, with free rides to be offered the next day.

“Walked full length of Boring Co tunnel under LA tonight.” Musk says in the tweet. “Disturbingly long. On track for opening party Dec 10. Will be very one-dimensional.”
The tunnel travels between the SpaceX headquarters before it turns and goes west for a few miles.
The idea behind the system is that electric-powered sleds will be moving not only vehicles but foot passengers and cyclists as well. The sleds will be lowered from the street level with an elevator system.
Some rumors say that the elevators could even connect to office buildings or private residences, but Musk has not made any statements or hinted about such plans.

Though the tunnel is not yet open to the public, the Boring Company is already in talks about another high-speed tunnel that will link downtown Chicago and the O’Hare International Airport.
