4 U.S. Mega-Regions Advance in Hyperloop Competition - Next City

Elon Musk’s Hyperloop concept has inched another step closer to actually whisking people between cities through low-pressure tubes at airline speed. In January, the Los Angeles-based Hyperloop One company (Musk isn’t affiliated) announced 35 semifinalists for its Global Challenge, an open call for proposals to implement the futuristic technology. Now it has whittled that number down to 10, including four routes in the U.S.: the Denver metro; from Chicago to Pittsburgh; from Miami to Orlando; and from Dallas to Houston. Hyperloop One announced the news Thursday.

Other routes in the final 10 link Glasgow to Liverpool in the U.K., Mexico City to Guadalajara in Mexico, and Mumbai to Chennai in India.
