Musk said the first two tunnel segments would serve as proof-of-concept sites to demonstrate ideas for a traffic-easing network of subterranean tubes whisking passenger-carrying "pods" and individual cars from place to place at high speeds.

Musk said, "If you can build a tunnel in L.A., you can build a tunnel anywhere", concerning the numerous challenges the test tunnel would need to overcome in the city, including the regulations, oil fields, methane gas, and seismic conditions. "But obviously that can only happen with public support".
