Elon Musk: ‘Verbal Government’ Approval for Hyperloop
Elon Musk tweeted out on July 20 that the Hyperloop transit system from New York to Washington, D.C. has gotten “verbal” approval.
The transit system in the Northeast may get a boost if information from Tesla founder and entrepreneur Elon Musk turns out to be true.
On Thursday, July 20, Musk tweeted that The Boring Co. received “verbal” government approval to begin building an underground Hyperloop. The new transit system would take 29 minutes to get from New York to Washington, D.C.
“Just received verbal government approval for The Boring Company to build an underground NY-Phil-Balt-DC Hyperloop,” Musk tweeted. “NY-DC in 29 minutes.”
The proposed Hyperloop would connect the city centers of New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, as Musk tweeted.
It was unclear who the government approval came from, whether it was the individual cities themselves or from a federal authority.
Musk cautioned that there was “still a lot of work needed to receive a formal approval,” but is optimistic that the green light will be given quickly.
