Elon Musk just announced that the New York City to Washington D.C. hyperloop is happening. Taking to Twitter, Musk said that he has received verbal approval to build an underground hyperloop, with at least a dozen entrance/exits in each city. Once completed, riders will be able to travel from city center to city center in under 30 minutes. Just received verbal govt approval for The Boring Company to build an underground NY-Phil-Balt-DC Hyperloop. NY-DC in 29 mins. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 20, 2017 Musk added – again, on Twitter – that there is still work to do to get official approval, but he is “optimistic that will occur rapidly.” The project will be built by The Boring Company at the same time as the Los Angeles hyperloop. Still a lot of work needed to receive formal approval, but am optimistic that will occur rapidly — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 20, 2017 Related: Hyperloop One exhibits exciting first images of full-scale test track Right now it takes four hours to drive between New York City and Washington DC, or three hours by train. The hyperloop would dramatically decrease transportation time, though specifics on how it would all would are still sketchy – and, of course, verbal approval is a far cry from having signatures on the dotted line. No doubt Musk will update us as things develop. via Inverse
