$75 Million Boring Airport Tunnel Gets Approval Versus $1.5 Billion Light Rail Extension

• by Brian Wang

The Boring Company proposal would build a 2.8-mile tunnel, 14 feet in diameter and about 35 feet underground. It would take passengers in electric vehicles with rubber tires traveling up to 127 mph to and from the airport. Each ride would take about 90 seconds to two minutes.

Boring Company and Tesla are develop electric vans for up to 12 people and their luggage. The tunnel system would be able to move 1,200 people per day, or 10 million-plus per year.
