D.C. approves preliminary permit for NYC-DC Hyperloop

WASHINGTON, D.C. The Boring Company is working with an as-yet unnamed firm, possibly Hyperloop One, to build a line between New York City and Washington, D.C., with stops in Philadelphia and Baltimore.  Engadget reports the newly projected total trip time between Washington and New York would approximately be 30 minutes instead of three hours, which is a game-changer.  This faster mode of transportation is revolutionary, as one could conceivably work in Manhattan and live in Philly for one-tenth of the price.

Elon Musk’s Boring Company has received a new permit for preparation and preliminary excavation of a site in the nation’s capital. This permit is for a spot at 53 New York Avenue NE in Washington’s trendy NoMa quarter. There are no long-term commitments from DC’s Department of Transportation. DDOT currently is examining what types of further permissions the Boring Company likely will need.

A Boring Company spokesperson told the Washington Post that “a New York Avenue location, if constructed, could become a station” as part of new Hyperloop networks of ultra-high-speed main lines and slower city “loops.”
