Hyperloop Could Free PortMiami To Be Developed With Parks, Commercial & Residential

Hyperloop One says that backers of the Miami-Orlando route are considering a connection to PortMiami, which would free up port land for other uses.

The hyperloop could quickly move cargo inland, freeing up space. Prime waterfront land currently used for backland operations, container storage, and trucking operations could instead be used for parks, commercial and residential development, the company says.

A trip between Miami and Orlando could take 26 minutes, according to the company. Stops would include the Miami Intermodal Center, Dolphin Mall, Walt Disney World and Orlando International Airport.

Miami Dade’s Department of Transportation and Public Works, Florida Department of Transportation, Miami-Dade Metropolitan Planning Organization, AECOM, and additional private and public-sector partners are said to be backing the project.
