The Hyperloop One could eventually come to Miami, creating a 26-minute route to Orlando.
Under Hyperloop One’s vision, passengers and cargo are loaded into a pod, and accelerate gradually via electric propulsion through a low-pressure tube.
“I am very happy that Miami-Dade was selected as one of the corridors where Hyperloop will set up their innovative transportation technology,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez. “This development will create a new travel opportunity for our residents and our community, and I, for one, can’t wait to take a ride.”
The initial Miami to Orlando segment is a 240-mile corridor. This corridor is envisioned to eventually be expanded north to Chicago.
- Phase 1: Miami to Orlando (240 miles)
- Phase 2: Orlando to Atlanta (420 miles)
- Phase 3: Atlanta to Chicago (780 miles)
Hyperloop technology is currently being development and tested. To learn more, visit the Hyperloop One page.
