Hyperloop One Planning Connection At Miami International Airport

Hyperloop One Planning Connection At Miami International Airport

Hyperloop One is working with Miami officials to build a connection from the Miami Intermodal Center to Orlando’s Airport.

The MIC is connected to Miami International Airport. Travel time between Miami and Orlando airports would take 26 minutes.

While the initial phase would start at the MIC, another phase could connect to the Port of Miami, Hyperloop One’s Dan Katz said.

Katz told the Orlando Business Journal that a big chunk of the funding would come from private sources, in what will be a public/private partnership.

Miami-Dade Department of Transportation and Public Works Director Alice Bravo “has done a tremendous amount of work,” Katz said, but officials in Orlando haven’t been as involved yet, Katz added.

The enclosed Hyperloop system will be covered in solar panels, he said.

Hyperloop will reach the Miami airport before Amtrak. Lol.

I doubt either will ever happen.

I like the idea but this seems like a pipe dream.

I used to think so too but I think a lot will depend on the current plan to build the first Hyperloop between Dubai and Abu Dhabi. If it is a success it might just become a reality in the US.

I know its a long shot and costly but why not propose a Hyperloop from Miami to New York? That would be cool.

That’s what airplanes are for.

Current Amtrak Metroliner service Between NY & DC takes ~3 hours and sells out regularly. That’s equal to or better than flying when you factor in getting to/from airports, security lines, and delays at congested LGA & DCA. Routing for a hyperloop would be problematic because of already dense development in the northeast.
The Florida routing going through the Everglades could take a decade to get through environmental reviews.

I think the next logical Hyperlook will be between L.A. and San Francisco and between New York and Washington, stopping in Philly

Hyperloop is absolute vaporware.

Their own estimate is a cost of about $11.5M per mile (which I don’t believe for a second but let’s take them at their word). The 235 mile route from Orlando to Miami would cost $2.7B.

From a human factors perspective, this mode of transportation is a nightmare. This won’t be like a train. It will be like Space Mountain for 30 minutes straight. A good portion of the population simply cannot ride a train like this without experiencing discomfort.

“The enclosed Hyperloop system will be covered in solar panels, he said.” Icing on the cake. This thing is a total marketing scam. It will also have a gluten-free free-trade juice bar. Pay by bitcoin only.

It’s definitely not vaporware.

vaporware: a product, especially software, that is promoted or marketed while it is still in development and that may never be produced.

This “product” is fundamentally unfeasible. I’m an engineer who’s developed many products. This is the biggest scam product I’ve seen in my lifetime.

almost as crazy as building your own rockets and going to space!
You’re forgetting that this “private money” is motivated by passion not profit.

The reason why this project is unfeasible is not because of technology. It’s all about economics. Financing an aerotech company is very different from financing a transit company. Unless he plans to fund this entirely himself, Musk is going to have trouble ever making something like this happen.

You can’t build a 230 mile vacuum tube for cheap. Just the raw materials alone will cost billions. Operating costs will also be orders of magnitude higher than traditional trains.

On top of that, there is no way they will get the right-of-way for this project. Brightline has the advantage of holding the original right-of-way from Henry Flagler as well as adjacent properties.

How do you convince a practical investor that this is a worthwhile project?

Why is all this infrastructure being built at the airport? Rail is meant to terminate *downtown*.

Brightline would never let them terminate at Miami central! Maybe they can spruce up government center or a new multimodal terminal near bayside

Just a distraction from our failed mass transit. Look at the bird over here.

Ummm, I want this to happen… But how are they going get approval to build straight through the Everglades?

Have any of these hyperloop proposals broken ground anywhere?

Yes. They’ve built and been testing in the desert outside Las Vegas. Still not a peak speeds but getting there little by little.

They’re still testing out the plausibility of these contraptions working, they haven’t broken ground on a proposal

What does this mean for Brightline?

Hyperloop would be far more expansive and brightline could always depend on just using the coastal link stay in business if it needed.

It would be more realistic to be shot into space, and shot back where you want to go.

Abu Dabhi to Dubai is already under construction – 12 minutes to go 100 plus miles

This is what should’ve happened instead of Brightline. Just imagine instead of 3 hours to get to Orlando from Miami, it took half an hour. I could work there or even live there and be in Miami in the same amount of time it takes to get from Fort Lauderdale to Miami by car.

You should brush up on what hyperloop tech is, and how implausible it is, we have technology now–lets use it instead of constantly waiting for the next best thing and not having any real change
