More Reaction to the Canadian HYPERLOOP


Now the Toronto Star has weighed in to the story of the HYPERLOOP.

A smooth-running TTC would be cooler than a Hyperloop to Montreal. Toronto to Montreal in 39 minutes doesn’t count for much when it’s hard enough getting from Toronto to Toronto in 39 minutes.

Don’t get me wrong: Hyperloop, the Elon Musk-inspired transportation technology that could one day ferry people to and from distant cities in under an hour, is extremely cool. It’s also extremely cool that this means of science fiction transportation, which moves passengers via “electric propulsion through a low-pressure tube,” might get its real-world start right here in Toronto.

Last year, Hyperloop One, a company attempting to turn Musk’s vision into a profitable reality, launched an open call for proposals, asking scientists to develop their own hyper-speed travel routes. And just last week, the company announced the winning results, among them a proposal by a design team called HyperCan, for a route that could transport people from Toronto to Montreal in 39 minutes.
