Elon Musk’s Boring Company is setting up operations in Austin



Elon Musk’s tunneling and transport start-up The Boring Company is eyeing Austin because of its next job based on several new project postings.

The Boring Company, that last year acquired a deal to build and run a “people Agency ” for the Las Vegas Convention Center, tweeted Monday which was was hiring in Austin. Engineering, accountant and business development positions are recorded on its site, the kind of tasks which indicate that The Boring Company sees sufficient opportunity in Austin to set up more permanent operations there.

Austin has turned into a hotbed of Musk-related activity. Tesla, that Musk directs, picked in July a site near Austin because of its next U.S. factory, a four to five-million-square foot $1.1 billion plant that can build the automaker’s glistening Cybertruck, the Tesla Semi along with the Model Y and Model 3 for sales to customers on the East Coast.

Musk described the upcoming factory as an “ecological paradise,” with a boardwalk and bike lanes and where the public will be more welcome. It’s uncertain if the first customer of The Boring Company is going to be Tesla.

The Boring Company has five product lines, all of which are centered around tunneling. The startup, that increased $120 million in new funding in summer 2019, provides the foundation tunnel to customers in addition to those designed for use by utilities, pedestrians, cargo and it’s so-called Loop service.

The business describes the Loop as an underground public transport system in which passengers will be transported through in autonomous vehicles at up to 150 miles per hour through tunnels between channels. The business states the autonomous vehicles are Tesla Model S, 3, and X. (It should be mentioned that while Tesla vehicles have robust advanced driver assistance systems, they are not thought to be by government bodies such as the U.S. DOT as entirely autonomousvehicles )

The Loop is what Las Vegas Las Vegas Convention Center officials dared for. Under its arrangement, the LVCC Loop is designed to transfer attendees through 2 0.8-mile underground tunnels at Tesla vehicles, four or five at one time. Planning files reviewed by TechCrunch appear to show that the Loop system won’t be able to move anywhere near the amount of people LVCC wants, which TBC consented to.
