VIDEO: Will the hyperloop revolutionize transportation after the pandemic?

Many folks from different spots on the political spectrum seem to think it’s a good possibility.

Unlike airplanes which cram a bunch of people into a metal tube, the hyperloop is designed to transport smaller groups, with greater frequency and speeds than airplanes, and without using fossil fuels.


“Hyperloop capsules are uniquely low density, allowing for speed and safety, and yet do not sacrifice a high volume of travel. Think about it this way: When you sit in an airplane, you are in a high-density environment alongside anywhere from 280 to 440 fellow passengers, all confined together in a small steel tube. Aside from the safety issues and weather concerns of modern commercial planes, this high-density environment makes commercial travel highly susceptible to pandemics.”

“By contrast, the hyperloop’s initial design carries about 30 to 40 passengers per sleek capsule, yet can still reliably deliver high volumes of people to their destination in a similar period of time.”

“Just last month, the U.S. Department of Transportation issued a direction to establish regulations for hyperloop technology, with Secretary Elaine Chao saying, “Inventors, investors, and stakeholders are ready to build out these technologies.” The Transportation Department has since categorized hyperloop under the Federal Railroad Administration, making it eligible for government infrastructure funds.”

We’d love to know your thoughts on the viability of the hyperloop.
