On July 20th, 2017, Elon Musk announced that he received verbal government approval for building a “hyperloop” connecting New York – Philadelphia – Baltimore – DC. The hyperloop, an underground tunnel, would take only 29 minutes to travel by electric transport from Washington DC to New York according to Elon Musk’s design in 2013. The hyperloop will be built by Tesla and the Boring Company. Drivers will access the loop via specific entry and exit points in each city.
