Global infrastructure company proposes hyperloop across Texas

A global infrastructure company presented an idea to Central Texas transportation leaders that’s floundered multiple times before – a high speed rail that connects major cities in Texas.

Steven Duong of AECOM spoke at Monday’s CAMPO meeting about how Texas could benefit from a Hyperloop that runs along the I-35 corridor from Fort Worth to Laredo. The proposed route would include stops possible stops in Waco, Temple, Killeen, Austin and San Antonio.

Amid all the means of transportation that are part of their study including hyperloop, maglev, high speed rail, guaranteed transit, commuter rail and higher speed rail, Duong said Hyperloop provides the “highest upside” for Texas.
