Pittsburgh-Chicago Hyperloop

Postby cjberndt » Sat Sep 16, 2017 7:10 am

In case you didn't hear about this on the radio Friday morning, it's obviously not the high-speed rail that has been the subject of interest here for the past few years.

>"because of the multi-state public-private coalition involved in the proposal"<

Marching the cows into the barn for another milking.

I'm waiting for the non-claustraphobic model to be developed. :lol:

The amazing issues are that:

1. Much of the industrialized world has high speed mass transit.

2. 60 million vehicles have been added to the US road network in the past 20 years, and the road network has not been upgraded to accommodate them.

3. Many levels of US and state government fight mass transportation every year (Amtrak among others).

Isn't this impressive?

So, would it actually stop so people could get on/off here? Or will it just zoom through?

It has to make stops to have passengers. Major cities would be regular stops.

I was under the impression that the passenger modules were more like the canisters they use at drive thru windows at banks?

The people traveling from Columbus to Chicago would not likely stop here to pick up passengers, they would just blow on by while the system would just "launch" a module from here to wherever you wanted to go? Isn't this the way that would work?
