We thought it would be helpful for non-Californians to see just how far the Hyperloop goes, so we used our

new measurement tool. Stations at these major population centers are considered for Hyperloop. One additional traffic corridor to consider is between Los Angeles, California and Las Vegas, Nevada with a metro population of 2.1 million. Significant traffic is present through this corridor on a weekly basis.

It's nearly 500 miles if Milo wants to make it down to San Diego for some surf!


Figure 32. Suggested Hyperloop route map (map courtesy of Google Maps).

The traffic between Los Angeles, California and San Francisco/San Jose, California is estimated to be at least 6 million travelers per year. This possibly represents the busiest corridor of travel in California. Travel along this corridor is anticipated to increase with completion of the Hyperloop due to both decreased travel time and decreased travel cost. Additional Hyperloop stations are suggested considered at the following major population centers: 1. San Diego, California: a. Connects to Los Angeles, California main station. b. Capsule departures every 5 minutes. c. Transports around 3 million people per year. 2. Las Vegas, Nevada: Would it be too much to ask that you bring the Hyperloop to Australia? Think about it and get back to us.
