Musk proposes Los Angeles tunnel to Dodger Stadium

San Francisco Giants v. Los Angeles Dodgers

Elon Musk's Boring Co has announced plans to build a public transportation tunnel to Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. Given the initiative's nascent stages, seats will be limited to 1,400 passengers per game - that's around 2.5% of the Dodger Stadium capacity.

Passengers will ride on autonomous electric skates traveling at 125-150 miles per hour. The company claims a one-way trip through the Dugout Loop would take under four minutes. Second, the proposed route only travels below property owned by the Boring Company or public land, and the project already has the (tweeted) support of LA Mayor Eric Garcetti. The company also promised to have no "above-ground disruption" during construction. Three sites are under consideration, in the vicinity of the Red Line's Vermont/Beverly, Vermont/Santa Monica and Vermont/Sunset stations. While "solving" rush hour was seen as too complex of an issue, The Boring Company chose Dodger Stadium, because the game times and the direction people were going provided a tangible way of being able to solve a traffic problem.

Metro has its Dodger Stadium Express bus.

If the Dugout Loop scores a run with the city, the Boring Company estimates it'll take up to 14 months to build the tunnel and the two Loop Lifts.

Organ donor opt-out system 'unlikely' to increase donations
Commenting on the new study, an NHS Blood and Transplant spokesman said: "This is a decision for the Government and Parliament". What's the argument for the opt-out system? Even under the existing opt-in system, many relatives have vetoed organ donation.

The firm said it is also working with several L.A. city agencies and drafting an environmental impact report. That project was the subject of a high-profile community presentation back in May.

Dubbed "The Dugout Loop", the high-speed system would be created to transport fans "from the Red Line to Dodger Stadium in under 4 minutes", the company said.

Another test tunnel, which was dug out starting from a parking lot next door to SpaceX's headquarters in Hawthorne, Calif., is now open for school tours. After that, The Department of Public Works would need to ensure the route is safe, and the company would then have to secure the necessary permits and city council approval.
