Elon Musk says NY-DC Hyperloop has government approval

Elon Musk explains what's wrong with math class

Signaling that Musk's tweets may be premature, the press secretary for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted a reply: "This is news to City Hall".

"It can't be more than just, 'Hey, this looks like an idea we're going to let you explore, "' Layne said of Musk's tweet.

Elon Musk says he has approval to build a Hyperloop service in the Northeast Corridor.

Musk founded The Boring Company past year to deploy continuous tunnel-boring machines created to link cities through deep underground tunnels.

Musk is best known for his electric auto company Tesla and his space venture SpaceX, as well as co-founding PayPal. Musk has said the tunnels could also be used by the Hyperloop, his idea for a hypothetical magnetic train that can travel at 700 miles per hour through vacuum-sealed tubes.

But the New York-DC hyperloop could also be the first major project for Musk's tunnel-digging company, The Boring Company.

Musk said during a TED conference in April that his tunneling company ties in closely with the hyperloop, since both require vacuum-sealed tunnels.

"Then prob LA-SF and a TX loop", he tweeted.

Musk initially proposed the idea for the Hyperloop in 2013, but he hasn't been directly involved with the startups, such as Hyperloop One and Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, that are working to develop it.

So far, The Boring Company has spawned many puns, but not much progress in terms of reaching Musk's goal.

"A White House spokesperson declined to say if Musk had been granted any approval, but told The Hill that the administration has had favorable conversations with the tech billionaire".

Having lost his patience with legendary California traffic, Musk recently pledged to build a short tunnel from his office to the Los Angeles airport before building a network of tunnels throughout the city. At this point in time, it has only been revealed that the new system will be slightly smaller and more affordable.

A representative of the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority pledged to look into whether the agency had had contact with Musk or The Boring Co.
