Freight tunnels can be smaller and can operate at slower speeds than would be demanded by passengers, and since the entire system is autonomous, comfort (and to some extent safety) can be less of a focus.

Hyperloop sounded like a pipe dream to me. This Cargo Sous Terrain sounds much more practical. Not having to accommodate passengers makes it much cheaper and easier to build, maintain, and run.
