Partnership to build 'hyperloop-like' high-speed system in Denver

Posted on November 15, 2017

Once in place, the system will turn a trip from Denver to Boulder, which can take more than an hour during rush hour, into an eight-minute trip. Arrivo expects the test track to be completed by 2021

DENVER — Arrivo, a transportation company startup led by a former Hyperloop One executive, and the Colorado Department of Transportation announced plans to build a series of high-speed transportation routes, CNBC reports.

The Arrivo system will propel vehicles and cargo through an electro-magnetic superhighway using magnetic levitation and electric power. Unlike the Hyperloop, which pushes pods through a vacuum tube at speeds of up to 600 mph, the Arrivo system in Colorado will move people to their destinations at much lower speeds.

Once in place, the system will turn a trip from Denver to Boulder, which can take more than an hour during rush hour, into an eight-minute trip. Arrivo expects the test track to be completed by 2021. For the full story, click here.
