What is unique about our approach is that we introduced an interdisciplinary, collaborative and participatory approach to developing a Hyperloop in Colorado.
We asked ourselves and hundreds of Coloradans, what if we could help design this project in a way that is more human-centered? To design it in a way that will help the communities and not hurt them.
The Hyperloop is all about connection. It is about eliminating borders and going beyond the limitations of time and space. It is meant to empower communities and that’s why we wanted to incorporate these future users.
We used social media and surveys to gather information about how Coloradans might use a Front Range Hyperloop. Though these surveys we found:
- Equal interest in a Northern route from Denver to Fort Collins as well as a southern route from Denver to Pueblo.
- Hyperloop construction would benefit Colorado infrastructure, energy and technology sectors as well as tourism and quality of life measurements. There was special interest in connecting Hyperloop with recreational areas like National Parks, ski and rafting.
