Hyperloop could have save 400 million tons of CO2 and create $300 Billion in benefit


Tuesday, June 2, 2020

The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission recently unveiled the results of their Midwest Connect study, exploring a hyperloop connection between Columbus, Chicago and Pittsburgh.

The study was conducted as part of the commission’s Rapid Speed Transportation Initiative.

It found that such a route, utilizing Virgin’s Hyperloop One technology, could create $300 billion in overall economic benefits, and reduce CO2 emission by 4 million tons.

After analyzing engineering complexity, public right of ways, environmental constraints, ridership volumes and travel behavior, the commission felt the project was viable.

The potential hyperloop, which uses a combination of electric propulsion and electromagnetic levitation, could connect Chicago and Columbus in under 45 minutes for about $60.

Columbus to Pittsburgh would take less than 30 minutes and run $33.

Next steps will involve the creation of a travel and economic demand advisory panel to further analyze and refine the planned route.
