Hyperloop One floats 11 potential routes for first USA system

The 11 routes have been designed by independent teams through the Hyperloop One Global Challenge announced past year.

Hyperloop One started building the DevLoop back in October of a year ago.

Hyperloop One plans to soon hold human trials in Nevada for its sci-fi-like transit system: Think huge tubes that stretch over the landscape and use electric propulsion to literally blast people-filled pods over the earth. Previously, they have shown off a demonstration of the pod technology. In early 2018, Hyperloop One will help three winners get financing and build their systems.

Hyperloop One approaching readiness to test its tech with a system that resembles what a final version would look like is a huge step, which is why it's so interesting to see the teams from USA states describe how the real thing might change economies and transportation. Hyperloop One is hoping to sway members of Trump's administration to include the 760 miles per hour transportation system in its plan to give America's infrastructure a face-lift.

Hyperloop One co-founder Shervin Pishevar said the company plans to be able to move people and cargo ultra-quickly.

The hyperloop will need to accelerate and slow down gently, so that the gravitational forces don't leave passengers feeling ill. Presenting at the Vision for America Conference today, the company has outlined a set of potential routes for a US Hyperloop system that would link more than 35 states. Until now, the focus on where the first hyperloop will be built centered on Dubai and eastern Europe. "It's just the next generation of high-speed rail, except cheaper and faster".

Former U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said the idea may seem out there now, but every mode of transportation was once just a dream.

"I think it's going to become a reality", he said.

"The airplane was pie in the sky, and the auto was pie in the sky ... virtually every mode of transportation we enjoy today was at one point kind of a pie in the sky idea", Foxx said after the event.

"From a planning perspective and from a regulatory perspective Texas is a good first step for Hyperloop", Duong said. Some of these routes, such as Los Angeles-San Diego, Miami-Orlando, and Seattle-Portland, are looking to cut down on costs and freight delivery time.

The Denver Post reports (https://goo.gl/T9uVSB ) Los Angeles-based Hyperloop One announced the finalists Thursday.

Lloyd said that by year's end the company will have a team of 500 engineers, fabricators, scientists and other employees dedicated to bringing the technology to life.
