A year ago, when unveiling the BFR, which is the giant rocket that SpaceX plans to use for its Mars colonization plans, Musk mentioned that they could use the rocket and spacecraft programs to create a transportation system on earth to get anywhere on the planet in about 30 minutes.

On Thursday night at 7 p.m.in Los Angeles, those lucky enough to have snapped up free tickets early will be able to see Elon Musk speaking at the Leo Baeck Temple and discussing The Boring Company's tunneling and hyperloop plans for the city. Perhaps he'll share more details on this marriage between his two companies - like if LA will be the first city to get one of those spaceports.

Musk's update on the Boring Co.'s information session prompted hundreds of responses from his followers on Twitter, several of whom inquired if the town hall meeting will be livestreamed online.

The Boring Company's upcoming information session in LA could comes at an opportune time.

In March, Musk also said going forward, The Boring Company's projects will prioritize transporting pedestrians and cyclists over cars.

In a recent Instagram post, Musk revealed that a Boring Company tunnel is almost complete, and once final regulatory approvals are completed, the tunneling startup would begin offering free rides to the public.

Elon Musk has also suggested building such hyperloop tunnels in other cities outside of Los Angeles like New York, Baltimore, Washington D.C., and Chicago.

After TED Talks tweeted a quote from Shotwell's conversation, Musk replied with his own bit of news: The Boring Company's underground hyperloop would play a role in quickly getting people to the BFR launch ports. The documents revealed that the Boring Company would be using a special type of concrete for its tunnels.

Two heads might be better than one, but what about two futuristic transportation technologies?

The Tesla CEO founded the Boring Company in December 2016 to combat auto traffic congestion in the Los Angeles area.

The result? A transportation system that could take you practically anywhere in the world in roughly an hour.
