    I see future in city transport, where visitors of the large city took suburbs parking, where they are took elektric minibus transport city for every direct in the city or elektric privat city taxi. I see that Americans are bounded for their car.Just ones trouble will be many lugadge's or huge cargo. Creation tunels under city for ones by ones car will be really expensive. Yes airtaxi will be come too, so hyperloop is great Idea for America where our Cities have long range measure between. I like every Elon futuristic thought, but costs for this under metro for Individuals will be huge.

    Elon's car tunnel when California is so earthquake prone ? Would you want the walls of the tunnel or other cars crashing into you because of the force of the earthquakes at over 200 mph ?? The chances of surviving an earthquake underground is much lower than above ground. Also, electric outages deep underground that cuts off fresh airflow and the lights down there and you are stuck for hours in that hot temperature situation. hmm.
