These are the winning routes of the Hyperloop One Global Challenge

Miami to Orlando Hyperloop is among 10 global winners

The technology of Hyperloop One puts passengers and cargo into a pod with gradual acceleration by electric propulsion through a low-pressure tube.

A Hyperloop route along the Front Range would allow travelers to reach their destinations within minutes.

Of particular note, is that Hyperloop One has entered into a public-private partnership with the Colorado Department of Transportation and together they will begin a thorough feasibility study of a potential route and all that it might be able to provide in terms of transport and freight.

CDOT Executive Director Shailen Bhatt says the plan could "potentially transform how Colorado moves". "The Hyperloop technology could directly align with our goals of improving mobility and safety in Colorado, and we have been encouraged by the continued progress the technology is taking".

Hyperloop One will commit resources and work with the Rocky Mountain Hyperloop team to determine the commercial viability of the route.

Pods would run through tubes, much like an above-ground subway system, and use magnetic levitation to glide at speeds faster than airlines due to extremely low aerodynamic drag inside the tube.

Imagine if you could make the 110-mile trip from Pueblo to Denver not in the normal two hours of travel time, but rather in less than 30 minutes.

"The winning teams of the Hyperloop One Global Challenge represent the best innovation and creativity from government agencies, engineering firms, academics, infrastructure experts and more", said Josh Giegel, co-founder and president of engineering at Hyperloop One. The winning teams were chosen based on specific criteria including well-defined routes and implementation strategies, key stakeholder involvement from public and private sectors, compelling business cases, and innovative and creative applications of a hyperloop system.

Hyperloop One picks 10 possible routes in worldwide locations.

A Colorado team has been picked as a victor of a global challenge to find the best places for hyperloop route. "Our successful test this summer made Hyperloop a reality, and now we're ready to bring our Hyperloop system to the world".

The 10 Hyperloop One Global Challenge winners represent the United States, the United Kingdom, Mexico, India and Canada.

In the United States there were four winning routes, these were: Cheyenne-Denver-Pueblo, Chicago-Columbus-Pittsburgh, Miami to Orlando, and Dallas to Houston.
