Following the September 2017 announcement that the Pittsburgh-Columbus-Chicago route was named one of the 10 finalists in the Hyperloop One Global Challenge, the great question was, "Is this really going to happen?" In March, MORPC announced it would be undertaking a $2 million study to research potential "rapid-speed" transportation options linking the three cities, including a feasibility study for Hyperloop.

So, where does Columbus and Hyperloop stand now? Beyond the promise of a 30 minute journey from Columbus to Chicago, most questions are still unanswered as the technology is developed and strategies are fleshed out.

CMC will welcome Dan Katz, Director of Global Public Policy & North American Projects, Virgin Hyperloop One, Ferzan Ahmed, Vice President, AECOM (the company completing the feasibility study), Thea Walsh, Director of Transportation Systems & Funding, MORPC, and host Jolene Molitoris, President/CEO, Molitoris Associates, and former Director, Ohio Department of Transportation.

In partnership with: MORPC, League of Women Voters
