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.
