The Hyperloop Super Fast Train

Here’s a possible new invention– a super high speed train that zips you from one city to another using that technology that whisks the canister from your the drive thru window at the bank over to the teller. It’s called the Hyperloop

    Tesla first showed a profit in 2013 and predicts car sales of 40, 000 in 2014. It sells $100, 000 cars and is a long way from being a factor in the auto industry. I have been on a European train that went 300 kph (186 mph). The US is way behind other countries in transportation because our population is more spread out and we do not want to give up our cars.

    Texas talked about a bullet train linking Austin, Houston, San Antonio, Dallas, and Fort Worth. Nothing came of it due to cost, but the nice part of things like that is you end up in downtown, rather than an airport 20 miles away. Not to mention the the intrinsic superiority of train travel over flying.

      The few European airports I have been to in Europe have rail and/or bus transportation to the city center. I am not sure that can be said for many American airports.

        I think the airports on the east coast have train connections. D/FW should have one in the next few years. Buses and cabs are available now, but I it’s still an extra connection. The other disadvantage is that if I got to Houston by bullet train or airplane, I’m still stuck in a sprawling city without a car.
