October Update

ColoradoHyperloop is a volunteer-citizen let effort. However, we can still shape Hyperloop policy and technology in Colorado as well as nationally and internationally. We hope the following update gives you insights and transparency and spurs you to join the discussion.

  • The ColoradoHyperloop.com website is undergoing a re-organization to be more user-friendly and be more transparent on initiatives for people to join.  Please contact us for ideas or thoughts.
  • We want to invite you to the ColoradoHyperloop Slack Channel: https://coloradohyperloop.slack.com  (Contact us to be invited) for those people that want to help out or just talk about hyperloops.
  • Colorado Hyperloop will be in attendance for the Transit Alliance & Colorado Department of Transportation 2017 Colorado Transportation Summit. Stay tuned for more information.
  • Colorado Hyperloop is working hard to highlight all the candidates for the 2018 Colorado elections. We wish to collect transparent and clear statements where each candidate (running for office and current representatives) stands on a I-25 and I-70 hyperloop connections. We are also learning how to be a pro-hyperloop group in the Colorado State Capital.
  • We are working on creating an online directory of pro-hyperloop organizations in Colorado.
  • We are planning a series of blog and video (possibly live streaming) posts discussing the CDOT public-private partnership documents with Hyperloop One/AECOM.
  • Continue seeking submissions for art or written interpretations of what a Colorado Hyperloop might look like in Colorado or how it could help in the future. Please read this post to learn how to help out.

Today is a proud day for the innovators and trailblazers of Colorado. Colorado Hyperloop is thrilled to see the Cheyenne-Denver-Pueblo corridor advance to the final stage of the Hyperloop One Global Challenge. We remain committed to working with other public, private, professional, and passionate teams to test the feasibility of a Hyperloop in our great state and ensure that Coloradoans have a voice in the design process. Colorado Hyperloop looks forward to working with CDOT, Rocky Mountain Hyperloop, and others to make Hyperloop a reality in Colorado.

Watch this space!

As a Semifinalist, Colorado Hyperloop successfully presented to Hyperloop One’s panel of expert judges and advisors today in Washington, DC.
Colorado’s unique geography, city and state buy-in, and amazing people make it a serious contender for this global prize. Today we shared our vision – your vision, as shared with us through surveys, Tweets, art, and dialogue.
