Hyperloop One Global Challenge

What Is The Hyperloop One Global Challenge?

The Hyperloop One Global Challenge is a competition which invites teams anywhere on Earth to put forward a comprehensive commercial, transport, economic, and policy case for their cities, regions, or countries to be considered to host the first hyperloop networks. The Hyperloop One Global Challenge is not an engineering competition: we bring the technology, you tell us how it should be used in your location.

Advised by an international jury of leading experts in transport, technology, economics and innovation, Hyperloop One is seeking to collaborate with applicants who most powerfully make the case for how Hyperloop would not only transform passenger and cargo transport in their locations, but also how that Hyperloop transformation will drive economic growth, generate opportunities for development, and create radically new opportunities for people to live anywhere, work anywhere and be anywhere.

Hyperloop One reduces the journey time from over 16 hours by ferry to around 30 minutes. With on-demand service planned to all major intermediate centers of population, direct service to both Helsinki and Stockholm airports, and a combined 40 million passengers per year, FS Links uses Hyperloop One to create a Nordic super-region.
