The Texas Hyperloop

 

Steven Duong, AICP
Associate Vice President
Design + Planning and Economics
AECOM


Hyperloop is a new way to move people or things anywhere in the world quickly, safely and efficiently. The system uses electric propulsion to accelerate a passenger or cargo vehicle, levitating slightly above a track, through a tube in a low-pressure environment. The autonomous vehicle glides at faster-than-airline speeds over long distances, meaning passengers will be able to travel between the major cities of the Texas Triangle - Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio - in mere minutes.


In addition to benefits for passenger travel, the Hyperloop will link the major cities in Texas to Laredo - home to the busiest inland freight port in North America. Cargo users at the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (3rd busiest freight airport in the world), the Port of Houston (2nd busiest sea port in nation) and the Laredo Inland Port will be able to ship their goods seamlessly between air, sea and land.


In this presentation, Mr. Duong describes why the Hyperloop is the next mode of transportation, moving people and things with minimal impact to the environment by eliminating emissions, noise and weather concerns.
