To: Tolerance Sucks Rocks

Sounds cool. But the technology is yet to be proven reliable or safe or durable. My off the cuff reaction is that it will end up costing well north of $40 billion to build out, and won’t make anywhere close to $30 billion in profits over the first 25 years.

Still, would be cool to see them build something like this as a pilot, and then scale it. But heck if it is all private money and private property who am I to complain?

To: monkeyshine

as with all intercity mass transit, regardless of mode, be it bus, train, or hyperloop,the real problem is now to travel to and from the station in City A and to and from the Station in City B ... even if one could be moved from City A to City B and then back again at the speed of light AND the trips were free, then what? rent a car? taxicab? Jitney? take a bus? ride a bike? walk?
