Preston Trail June Luncheon – Register Now

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

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.

Thursday, June 15, 12:00 pm, Canyon Creek Country Club, Richardson, TX

In addition, you will not want to miss the installation of our newly elected Preston Trail Officers as they take on their new roles. We look forward to seeing you there!
