Colorado Selected For Experiment Of Levitation-Based Transportation

DENVER – Hyperloop One, the Los Angeles based company that is proposing to build levitation-based technology to carry passenger and cargo systems at speeds of up to 700 mph, has selected the Rocky Mountain Hyperloop team as one of 35 world-wide semifinalists to build the new technology. The team includes the Colorado Department of Transportation/RoadX (CDOT) and global infrastructure firm AECOM as primary sponsors. The City of Greeley in northern Colorado and the City and County of Denver/Denver International Airport (DEN) will be included in the plan. “We are excited about the opportunity to provide the progressive perspective that Hyperloop One brings—it will change our customers’ current perception of transportation, and as a result, revolutionize what we think we know,” said Shailen Bhatt, Executive Director of the Colorado Department of Transportation.
