Elon Musk company could team up with The Alamo Regional Mobility Authority for major project

Elon Musk’s The Boring Company could be headed to San Antonio to help The Alamo Regional Mobility Authority with a project. The project calls to build a hyperloop tunnel from the San Antonio International Airport to downtown. This is just a proposal to the billionaire and the proposals are due December 1st.

โ€œBy going out to the private sector, it opens up the opportunities for what might be possible,โ€ said Greg Griffin, program leader and assistant professor in Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Texas at San Antonio. โ€œAnd whether that leads to a specific project or not, it certainly opens up peopleโ€™s imaginations and conversations about what an appropriate solution is for San Antonio.โ€

Musk’s hyperloop project offers fully autonomous high-speed travel just like the one built in Las Vegas.

Now, we’re asking the questions… why San Antonio out of all places and could this solve our transit issue of not having a light rail system?
