In a new Boring Company video, you can see Elon Musk’s vision for the new subway system. The main priority will be pedestrians and cyclists. According to Elon Musk, the main reason for doing this is to make sure that it’s fair to people who can’t afford cars.
SAN FRANCISCO — Tech maverick Elon Musk wants to build a new subway-like system that prioritizes pedestrians and cyclists over cars, a big shift from his previous traffic-busting vision.
A series of Musk tweets on Friday included an animation that shows a bus-like vehicle suddenly lowering itself deep underground where it joins a flowing artery filled with similar people-filled pods.
“Will still transport cars, but only after all personalized mass transit needs are met,” Musk tweeted. “It’s a matter of courtesy & fairness. If someone can’t afford a car, they should go first.”
Better video coming soon, but it would look a bit like this: pic.twitter.com/C0iJPi8b4U
