Manufactured under his firm Boring Co., Hyperloop is a network of high-speed transit tunnels created to maximise the efficiency of public transport at a lowered cost.

Elon Musk's Hyperloop ultra high-speed transport system will be unveiled in Los Angeles in early December with free test rides to the public, the entrepreneur announced.

While the trial tunnel - which begins on the site of Musk's rocket company SpaceX in Hawthorne, California - injects a dose of realism to his vision of a hyper-fast underground system, key questions remain. A bank of elevators would take pedestrians, cyclists or cars from street-level stations to underground tunnel stops.

"The first tunnel is nearly done", Musk said on Twitter late Sunday night. In June he said the fare would be $1 per passenger.

Musk has previously said that his tunneling company "started out as a joke" and admitted that the project might fail.

According to The Boring Company website, the Hawthorne tunnel "leaves SpaceX property (parking lot east of Crenshaw Boulevard and south of 120th Street), turns west under 120th Street, and remains under 120th Street for up to 2-miles". One of the proposed routes would take passengers from the District to NY in under 30 minutes.
