The plan is to exempt the construction from the California Environmental Quality Act and shave a few years off of the project.

If someone can’t afford a car, they should go first," Musk tweeted in early March. "Boring Co urban loop system would have 1000’s of small stations the size of a single parking space that take you very close to your destination & blend seamlessly into the fabric of a city, rather than a small number of big stations like a subway."
