Hyperloop Mexico Closer to Reality as CDMX-GDL Route Wins Global Comp

Traveling between Mexico City and Guadalajara could soon become a painless 38-minute commute, as Hyperloop One chooses Hyperloop Mexico (MexLoop) as one of the 10 most viable for construction in its global competition.

The 532-kilometer route joined other winners in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and India, each selected as finalists from 2,600 submissions.

Fernando Romero, son-in-law of businessman Carlos Slim, leads the consortium that proposed the route, which will now now collaborate with Hyperloop One to determine its commercial viability.

If deemed feasible, applications will begin for the relevant permissions to build the project, and commuters and tourists could be experiencing the future of travel not long afterwards.
