SciShorts: The Boring Company to Prioritise Pedestrians

In a recent tweet, Elon Musk mentioned that The Boring Company will prioritise pedestrians and cyclists over cars. Although tunnels will still transport cars on a massive scale, Musk believes that mass transit should be given most importance. A bus like pod will be taking pedestrians from the ground level and descends underground through something similar to a car elevator. It will then race through the tracks at speeds of over 200 kmh.
