Above is a very interesting video by the New York Times on the new 2nd Ave. Subway. Key points that can be derived for the Colorado Hyperloop include alot of project finance but also good old human to human interaction. Cities are difficult places when building transit lines watch out for sewer, water, gas and even electrical lines. Neighborhoods are impacted due to construction zones and often take a hit economically. Density of people per square mile + daily ridership public transit = transportation system that makes the city exist. New transportation will affect current offices, things will change, losses will be had…

But what sets it aside from the retro subway is the “futuristic” speed and high quality efficacy. In order for the hyperloop to be built, we need to look around the world at other transport systems. If we will find a piece of one system that sets it apart from others, in a good way, those elements should be included in the hyperloop.  The Colorado Hyperloop should be a “transport enthusiast’s…
