    All these high speed transit ideas beg one question that no one will answer satisfactorily.

    Why would anyone willingly want to go to Calgary?

    The second point is, if they build it, say goodbye to international destinations from EIA.


    BTW there already is a hyperloop thread

    If this ever happens, say goodbye to YEG. In fact say goodbye to most domestic airports if/when a full scale system develops throughout North America. At twice the speed of the average aircraft the only flights needed will be international.
