Trains take up less space, transport more people, are cheaper and more environmentally friendly than cars. Since trains are so efficient, one would expect companies to find ways to improve them. Instead, Elon Musk has found a way to create an insulting, private imitation of what makes trains great. Despite Musk having tweeted “It’s either traffic forever or tunnels,” the tunnel jams that have developed prove othersiwe. The Boring Company has managed to implement the negative aspects of cars into the concept of a metro system. Like his other company, Tesla, Musk has prioritized profits and marketability over consumer comfort.
