‘Hyperconnected Europe’ brings together cities and regions to create a joint vision of hyperloop network across the continent
The Hyperconnected Europe initiative is a community of cities and regions jointly creating a vision for the European hyperloop network. It is established by the world’s largest public-private partnership around Hyperloop — the Hyperloop Development Program.
Over 50 cities and regions from 15 European countries have attended introductory webinars and six pioneering cities and regions have signed a Letter of Support, making them official supporters of the initiative.
The supporting cities and regions include Berlin (Germany), Groningen Province and Rotterdam (Netherlands), Flanders (Belgium), as well as Zaragoza and Algeciras (Spain).
The goals of the initiative are to explore various aspects of the future European hyperloop network, such as its layout, passenger and cargo services, stations, and impact on Europe’s sustainability goals.
Outlines European hyperloop system
Under the initiative, regional workshops are organized to investigate the potential of certain routes and connections. The first stage of the Hyperconnected Europe initiative is to conclude in June with a final report that will summarize the results and sketch the outlines of the European hyperloop system. The main outcome of this stage is a shared understanding of how to best implement a continent-wide hyperloop network within the next decade.
A viable candidate for the first commercial hyperloop route is the corridor between Amsterdam and Rotterdam. The Cargo-Hyperloop Holland feasibility study published last.
