Tunnel Tours Soon To Be Offered By Boring Company

AUG 14 2018 BY STEVEN LOVEDAY 8

How about a student tour of The Boring Company’s Hawthorne, CA tunnel?

Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk’s Boring Company announced on Twitter that it will be offering student tours of the tunnel site in Hawthorne, CA. Each tour can host up to 30 LA county students at a time.

In order to set up a tour, you can email studenttours@boringcompany.com. The Tweet makes it clear that the student would need to have a faculty sponsor to make the contact, and it’s assumed the faculty member would also need to be present for the tour. So, if you’re not a student, but have been eager to check out the Boring Company tunnel, you may be able to round up some students and make it happen.

This announcement comes ahead of the tunneling company’s newest venture in Chicago. The Boring Company won the bid to build a high-speed transport system from the downtown Chicago area to O’Hare International Airport.

Tesla offers tours of its Fremont production facility, as well as the Gigafactory in Sparks, NV. It’s a positive way to involve and enlighten the public, In addition, gearing it toward young people could prove especially beneficial.

Thus far, the Hawthorne tunnel is about 2.7 miles long. When completed, it will function as a 6.5-mile test tunnel for the company’s future pursuits. It’s important to note that this particular tunnel is only being billed as a proof-of-concept for now. However, in the future, if the Boring Company’s LA tunnel system expands, it may be converted into a portion of that route.

I’d be up for a Boring tour.

Small nit: gigafactory tours are presently available to investors only, but they plan to open it up in the future to other parties.

This question came up during the Fremont tour.

Whom would the Boring Company bill this tunnel to? I think you mean the tunnel is being built.

I’d love to take a tour of the tunnels at Disney World, where they’ve put all the park’s utility lines — water, gas, sewer, electrical — for easy access and easy maintenance. That’s a futurist taking his vision and making it both real and practical!

But a tunnel that’s a pilot project for a wildly unrealistic pipe dream, a super-rich man indulging his economically impossible wishful thinking by turning it into a construction company?

No thanks.
