To that end, Musk revealed on Twitter that one of the first cities that might avail of his Boring idea could be Los Angeles following comments made by its mayor, Eric Garcetti.

Despite already having his hands full with running both Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk announced towards the end of past year that he was going to make it a trifecta of companies with the addition of The Boring Company.

Musk officially launched his tunnel company, aptly named The Boring Company, in April. Time will tell what effect the permitting complexity and delays will have on the project, though today's tweet demonstrates Musk's positive outlook for the project and his willingness to continue pushing forward.
