The Boring Company wants to dig a tunnel under Tesla Gigafactory Texas

Quick Summary

Elon Musk’s The Boring Company has filed an application with the city of Austin to build a tunnel under Tesla’s Gigafactory Texas in Austin.

The application, which Electrek first reported on, does not state what Tesla intends to do with the tunnel.

This builds off the company’s “loop” in Vegas, which is a system of tunnels in which Teslas move people between stations to avoid surface traffic — like a subway but boujee-er.
