Musk introduced the concept of high-speed underground electric bus

The Head and founder of companies SpaceX and Tesla Elon Musk has shared on his page on "Twitter" concept is the underground high-speed buses, the development of which is currently engaged in his new venture The Boring Company. In contrast to the high-speed underground tunnel system, which is now Boring Company digs near Los Angeles and soon will begin near Washington, this development is primarily aimed at pedestrians and cyclists, not cars.

"the System will be able to carry cars, but only when they covered all the needs of public transport. It is a question of respect and fairness. First thing you need to think about those who can't afford a car," he wrote in the microblog.

Musk also shared some technical details of the concept. It is assumed that the underground electric bus can reach speeds of up to 240 kilometers an hour. The propulsion system will be multi-level and use the Elevator system to move between these levels.

The Head of The Boring Company explained that the implementation of the project will create thousands of small stations about the size of one Parking space. This will be the main difference of the new from metro, which requires the construction of large stations, but in smaller amounts.
