Transportation tech firm Hyperloop One announced 11 semifinalist routes in the U.S. that could receive its system that propels vehicles at speeds of about 760 miles per hour. A route in Missouri is in the running.
According to Hyperloop One, the Missouri route would help connect five million people along the 240-mile route. It would also include a stop in Columbia, which would be a 13-minute trip from Kansas City. From Kansas City to St. Louis, the trip would take a mere 23 minutes.
The company plans to announce the winners in May. Let’s hope it’s Missouri!
