They won’t go everywhere but they will go faster than trains, busses, and planes (avoiding the wait at the airport). John Fingas on a plan to run a hyper loop from St. Louis to Kansas City:
In theory, the pod-based system would shuttle you between the cities in under half an hour, instead of the nearly 4 hours it takes by car — you could commute from one end of the state to the other for work.
As far as hyperloop routes go, however, this is potentially ideal. Hyperloop One’s Dan Katz observes that it would be an “incredibly straight” route, which is rather important for pods that can hit speeds of up to 760MPH.
That’s about the speed of sound.
