There is a way that you could bring one of the world’s first Hyperloop systems to your region or country. Hyperloop One; the company behind the May 11, 2016, test of the pod’s magnetic propulsion system, is looking for a location for the first functioning Hyperloop line.

The company formerly known as Hyperloop Technologies is seeking entrants in the Hyperloop One Global Challenge. In the challenge; an international jury of experts will determine which corridor the first working Hyperloop line will be built. They will be looking at potential locations all over the world; including cities and regions.

Governments, groups of investors, research organizations, economic development agencies, civic groups, real-estate developers, corporations, school administrators and others are invited to submit entries. Practices of engineers, architects, and similar professionals are also invited to submit entries.

This means that if you want Hyperloop in your community, you should contact your political leaders, or civic organizations like the Chamber of Commerce. Full details about the challenge are available at Hyperloop One’s website.

Big Things Happening at Hyperloop One

There’s a lot happening at Hyperloop One. The startup; founded by Silicon Valley venture capitalist Shervin Pishevar and led by former Cisco Systems President Rob Lloyd, recently held the first test of its magnetic propulsion system in North Las Vegas, Nevada.

The company has also recruited an impressive group of partners including the publically traded US engineering and design company AECOM (NYSE: ACM), the Swiss Industrial consortium Cargo Sous Terrain and Germany’s national railroad; the Deutsche Bahn AG. The Deutsch Bahn is also the second largest transportation company in the world and the largest rail and infrastructure operator in Europe.

Other partners in Hyperloop One’s venture include; the French engineering and consulting company Systra, the Swiss engineering and technology company the Amberg Group and the famous international architects the BIG or Bjarke Ingels Group.

If that was not press reports indicate that both the French national railroad, the SNCF and GE Ventures; a subsidiary of General Electric (NYSE: GE), have invested in Hyperloop One. To add icing to the cake 150 people from organizations as diverse as Tesla Motors (NASDAQ: TSLA) SpaceX, Boeing (NYSE: BA) and Germany’s national airline have joined Hyperloop One in recent months according to The Verge.

Three Potential Hyperloop Projects Identified

In addition to the global challenge, Hyperloop One is conducting feasibility studies for three transportation systems that could built in the near future. These include: the FS Links a line that will connect Finland’s capital of Helsinki with Sweden’s capital of Stockholm, a system of underground freight moving tunnels in Switzerland to be run by Cargo Sous Terrain; and the Arcturian Sustainable Cargo a system that will move freight to and from the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach – America’s busiest.

It looks as if Hyperloop could soon become a reality and if you play your cards right it could be in your backyard.
