Musk founded the company in December 2016. Underground tunnels, as conceived by the inventor and businessman, will help relieve traffic congestion. He wrote on Twitter: “traffic Jams are driving me crazy. Will build the machine for digging tunnels and start digging. Call it The Boring Company”. Boring translates to English as “drilling”, and “boredom”.

The Boring Company is also building an underground tunnel for another project Mask: high-speed Hyperloop transport system. It consists of a sealed pipe tunnel, from which pumped out almost all the air. Through this tunnel on the basis of contactless will move the train, the speed of which, according to estimates, could reach up to 1200 km/h because of the lack of friction and air resistance.

At the end of July Musk has received the consent of the US authorities on the establishment of a Hyperloop tunnel, which will connect new York to the capital Washington. The creators of the Hyperloop is expected that the travel time is only 29 minutes.
