Philadelphia to Pittsburgh Hyperloop Could Be A Reality

March 13, 2019

We can almost hear Doc now, "Roads? Where we're going we don't need roads."

Imagine being able to get to Pittsburgh in only 30 minutes from Philadelphia... that is probably faster than any commute using the Schuylkill. Well, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission has hired a consultant to look into what it would take to make that a reality. 

Pennsylvania has begun studying tech billionaire Elon Musk’s hyperloop concept. On the hyperloop, pods take passengers through massive underground tubes at speeds over 700 mph. The study is expected to be completed by next year.
