Cheyenne to Pueblo Hyperloop one of ten winners

Cheyenne to Pueblo Hyperloop one of ten winners

Hyperloop is a pressurized tube that speeds pods containing human passengers or cargo across land at jet plane speeds using electromagnetic propulsion. "We're looking forward to working with our partners in the Midwest to explore the potential of this transformational technology".

Two other routes in Colorado were under consideration: A 242-mile route by the Colorado Hyperloop team between Cheyenne and Pueblo and a 1,152-mile route by the Rocky Mountain Hyperloop Consortium from Cheyenne to Houston. The idea is that the train could match or exceed the speed of an airliner.

According to Hyperloop One, Colorado's population growth and emerging industry sectors would benefit immensely from a Hyperloop connection along the Front Range.

A proposal to build a "hyperloop" transportation system from Cheyenne down along the Front Range has been named one of 10 winners in a global competition held by Hyperloop One. The company made history this summer with the successful completion of the world's first-full scale hyperloop test, the release stated.

The challenge of finding routes involved more than 100 countries.

Hyperloop One, based in Los Angeles, is one of several start-ups around the world racing to develop the system of tubes, depressurized inside to reduce friction, in order to transport pods carrying commuters.

The Texas proposal - dubbed the Texas Triangle - was submitted by engineering firm AECOM with support from the North Central Texas Council of Governments, Dallas Area Rapid Transit, Austin Capital Metro, City of Dallas, Houston-Galveston Area Council, the Port Authority of Houston, Public Works and the U.S. -Mexico Chamber of Commerce. Other locations include Chicago-Columbus-Pittsburgh, Miami-Orlando, and Dallas-Laredo-Houston; with global locations in Canada, India, Mexico and the United Kingdom. Following that investigation, 10 different routes from 5 countries were selected; the winning countries were the US, UK, Canada, Mexico, and India.

A Colorado team that includes Greeley has been tabbed as one of 10 winners of the Hyperloop One Global Challenge, officials announced Thursday. "Studies like this bring us closer to our goal of implementing three full-scale systems operating by 2021".
