Columbus advancing in process to become 1st hyperloop location

For all you Hyperloop-heads out there, we’ve got some good news: Central Ohio was selected to advance to the second phase of the process to become the first official hyperloop certification center in the United States.

Seventeen other states submitted proposals, including Delaware, Georgia, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, and West Virginia.


According to a release, over the last several weeks, MORPC has been meeting with several local governments to provide an update on the initial findings of the Rapid Speed Transportation Initiative (RSTI), which aims to improve connectivity across the Chicago-Columbus-Pittsburgh corridor.

The update also included findings on the Hyperloop Feasibility Study (also referred to as the Midwest Connect Feasibility Study) and the Environmental Impact Study (EIS) of the corridor.
