A year ago, when unveiling the BFR, which is the giant rocket that SpaceX plans to use for its Mars colonization plans, Musk mentioned that they could use the rocket and spacecraft programs to create a transportation system on earth to get anywhere on the planet in about 30 minutes.

Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk will headline a town-hall style meeting in Brentwood on Thursday, May 17, where the public will have the opportunity to ask the visionary himself about his plans to build a futuristic, all-electric transit system underneath Los Angeles.

With The Boring Company's new 2.7-mile tunnel in Los Angeles nearing completion soon, as the Inquisitr recently reported, talk has now turned to Elon Musk's recent tweet which appears to suggest that Musk may be seriously considering integrating The Boring Company with SpaceX for astonishingly fast transportation to any point around the globe in under 60 minutes.

The company's website says that its "fast to dig, low cost tunnels would also make Hyperloop adoption viable and enable rapid transit across densely populated regions, enabling travel from NY to Washington D.C.in less than 30 minutes".

In March, Musk also said going forward, The Boring Company's projects will prioritize transporting pedestrians and cyclists over cars.

Last December, The Boring Company filed for a tax exclusion to the California Alternative Energy and Advanced Transportation Financing Authority. Videos and pictures of the project were recently made public, with Musk noting that, "pending final regulatory approvals", the company will start giving free rides to the public in a few months. The documents revealed that the Boring Company would be using a special type of concrete for its tunnels. The tunneling startup, for one, has already outlasted two of its rival bidders in the proposed, high-profile downtown Chicago-O'Hare transport system.

There will be an update on the plans of the Boring Company and Musk and his teams take questions.
