What is hyperloop? The fastest, cleanest and safest way to connect the world. 

Learn more about it Thursday, October 26th at the Central Chapter October Dinner Program. Networking 6-7pm , dinner at 7pm.

A proposal to build a "hyperloop" transportation system in Colorado with people riding back and forth in a tube at high speed has been named one of 10 winners in a global competition held by Los Angeles-based Hyperloop One.  The state’s winning proposal was from the Rocky Mountain Hyperloop team, which includes the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), Denver International Airport and the city of Greeley.

Hyperloop One, CDOT, and AECOM -- CDOT’s partner in the proposal -- will shift into a public-private partnership to start a feasibility study of a Front Range hyperloop route from Cheyenne to Pueblo
