LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — We’re getting our first look at a test for a transportation system that could take people from Southern California to the Bay Area in just half an hour.
Hyperloop is building the pods that would move at 700 mph, or near-supersonic speed.
The first private test took place in the Nevada desert.
The company says it now has one full-scale hyperloop but hopes to have three in service in four years.
The founders say this reminds them of another time transportation took a huge step forward. The company says it now needs to get the state and federal governments on board, because getting the right-of-way for land will be crucial to building the system.
