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.

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.

More about today’s events in the Denver Business Journal here.

Tomorrow we look forward to continuing to shape the conversation about the Hyperloop’s potential for connecting people and communities along the Front Range and elsewhere.

July Update on the Colorado Hyperloop & Hyperloop One Global Challenge

  • Happy 140th Birthday Colorado!

    The Centennial State first joined the union on Aug. 1, 1876 thanks to Proclamation 230, which was signed by President Ulysses S. Grant. The state is named for the Colorado River, which got its name for the ruddy silt Spanish travelers saw in the water.

    Colorado became a territory on Feb. 28. 1861, and has been inhabited by Native Americans for 13,000 years.

    The U.S. Census Bureau estimates 5,456,574 people lived in Colorado as of July 1, 2015 – an 8.5 percent increase since the 2010 census.

    At 104,094 square miles, Colorado is the eighth largest state in terms of land – but ranks 22nd in terms of population.  Via 9News.com
