Elon Musk has just announced his detailed proposal for the Hyperloop project.
One object on everyone’s mind is where, precisely, this massive public works infrastructure is going to go.
From the proposal:
- 300 mph (480 kph) for the Los Angeles Grapevine South section at 0.5g, Total time of 167 seconds
- 555 mph (890 kph) for the Los Angeles Grapevine North section at 0.5g, Total travel time of 435 seconds
- 760 mph (1,220 kph ) along I-5 at 0.5g, Total travel time of 1,518 seconds
- 555 mph (890 kph) along I-580 slowing to 300 mph (480 kph) into San Francisco.
There’s a total travel time of 2,134 seconds (35 minutes)
Conveniently, Musk included this map that shows the planned route of the Hyperloop. Underneath, you’ll see the proposed expansions:
