Hyperloop Transit

Elon Musk, the owner of The Boring Company, is changing the mission of this company to something exciting. Developing underground Hyperloop Transit that prioritizes pedestrians and cyclists, allowing them to transport to 1,000’s of different locations efficiently. The idea is to load customers onto transit cars the size of a parking space, indicated by dotted areas in the urban environment. These locations are close to generally popular destinations where pedestrians travel. The single-car model would be a major disruptive innovation against the current subway system. Elon Musk is well known for saying that his model will totally replace the current subway-style model.

This model carries many different stop locations that are very small instead of large stop locations that are few in number. A key benefit of this model is that it’s also very high speed resulting pedestrians reaching their location fast.

In my opinion, I am very excited about this. I like fact that we can travel faster and add variety to our choice of destinations. Please comment your thoughts!
