Excitement builds for Toronto to Montreal Hyperloop
A trip from Toronto to Montreal usually takes about five hours, though it can drag on for much longer. But imagine cutting your travel time down to a mere half an hour. That may actually be possible within the next few years thanks to the Toronto-based startup Transpod.
No, this isn't science fiction. Transpod, as the Toronto Star reports, aims to bring Elon Musk's Hyperloop technology (pods that run in a low pressure tube to transport people and things at extremely high speeds) to fruition.
Transpod has already built a prototype and aims to present at Berlin's InnoTrans Rail show in September. According to the Star, the company aims to have a working model of the Hyerloop ready by 2020.
Yet, this technology has also attracted some skeptics, especially those who say it'll be far too expensive to build a Hyperloop network across Canada.
