In 2016, Virgin Hyperloop One requested route proposals from innovators around the world. Proposals from India, Dubai and the United States are just a few countries with interest in the project.

Experts say the Hyperloop could ease congestion, promote tourism, and generate revenue. The Missouri Hyperloop Coalition, comprising representatives from the transportation department, will be conducting a feasibility study for fares and cost of the project.

Paying for the hyperloop won’t be easy, as funding will need to come from private investors, instead of relying on tax dollars. In 2017, Virgin Hyperloop One built a test track in Nevada. The speed of the pod reached 240 mph. Imagine the commuting possibilities!
