A current trip from NY to D.C. takes more than three hours. Elon Musk is close to making a way for you to travel that same distance in 29 minutes.
Musk’s Boring Company has received a permit for preparation and preliminary excavation. In July, Elon Musk tweeted that he had received verbal government approval to build a multi-state underground Hyperloop on the East Coast.
Just received verbal govt approval for The Boring Company to build an underground NY-Phil-Balt-DC Hyperloop. NY-DC in 29 mins.

Stations for the Hyperloop would be relatively small and toned down compared to the stations we’re used to, such as Union Station and Penn Station. There would be a main line running between the four aforementioned cities, with smaller lines spurring out from the city’s central station for other potential destinations.
No details have been released on how the specs of the trains. But damn if this works you can imagine more major cities will be adopting this text. Imagine going from LA to NY in just 2 hours.
