Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –


Elon Musk’s LA tunnel for the hyperloop is almost finished, reports CNN Money and others in media.

It represents Musk’s plan to beat Los Angeles traffic.

Musk, is known for Tesla, Space X and is the founder of the Boring Company.  He announced late Thursday the tunneling startup has nearly finished building its first stretch of a Los Angeles tunnel.

The tunnel will be a key component of its loop transport system, which will move people in their own cars or passenger “pods” for bicyclists and pedestrians. The high-speed system will allow people to bypass LA traffic, and thus get around the city faster.

But it is also a possible vision into how commuters from outside a metro could move more quickly into a city to do their work.  That would allow workers to buy homes – including manufactured homes – further out, where land and other costs would be lower.

Musk stated that the public will be offered free rides on his Loop service in the upcoming months, once the Boring company receives regulatory approval.


The company has sought a permit for a 2.7-mile tunnel in busy West Los Angeles, but its overall vision includes a 60-mile tunnel network that would be one of the largest subway networks in the United States.

Musk said pedestrians and cyclists will receive priority access to the tunnels, and that access will cost less than a bus ticket.
