This month you will not want to miss our guest speaker, Mr. Steven Duong, AICP, Senior Urban Planner with AECOM, on the Hyperloop Texas Project.
Hyperloop is a new way to move people or things anywhere in the world quickly, safely, efficiently, on-demand and with minimal impact to the environment. The system uses electric propulsion to accelerate a passenger or cargo vehicle through a tube in a low pressure environment. The autonomous vehicle levitates slightly above the track and glides at faster-than-airline speeds over long distances. Hyperloop eliminates direct emissions, noise, delay, weather concerns and pilot error. It’s the next mode of transportation.
