Hyperloop Reality

Next-Gen Transportation Projects Present Execution And Planning Hurdles

There's a lot of hype for hyperloop. In 2013, entrepreneur Elon Musk proposed "hyperloops," jump-starting interest in proving the concept: vacuum- and magnetic levitation-powered pods moving at near-supersonic speeds through tubes. Last November, Mr. Musk's Boring Company received a preliminary permit to start digging a hyperloop tunnel beneath Washington, D.C., USA that he hopes to connect to New York, New York. Other bold projects are on the drawing board in the United States, Europe and Asia. In the U.S., Hyperloop Transportation Technologies has proposed connecting Cleveland, Ohio with Chicago, Illinois. Another startup, Virgin Hyperloop One, backed by Sir Richard Branson, has a deal with the United Arab Emirates for a project linking Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
