Transit Times Decrease
The Hyperloop, one of Elon Musk’s most successful ideas, has expanded NYC’s 30-45 minute commute range as far as Boston, Washington, DC, and Ithaca, NY.
As defined by 10boros, a "hub" is the basic unit that represents the coverage of the Hyperloop in a population center. Hubs are connected by tubes that use electric propulsion to accelerate a passenger or cargo vehicle up to 700mph in a low-pressure environment.
Seamless integration with autonomous vehicles further increases the range of hubs up to the door steps of the passengers. The first set of hubs, built and operated by the private company 10boros, connects New York and Philadelphia. 10boros surprised a wide range of pundits by keeping the fare comparable to those of buses and trains to nearby suburbs.
