The Dallas-Fort Worth Regional Transportation Council (RTC) announced that it will use hyperloop technology for two major transportation initiatives across the state on Wednesday.

The RTC will also provide funding to connect Fort Worth, Waco, Temple-Killeen, Austin, San Antonio and Laredo.

The hyperloop technology is a new mode of transportation that allows vehicles to travel at very high speeds with minimal aerodynamic resistance by operating in a low-pressure environment.

 “The RTC is all about bringing innovation to the transportation system in the Dallas-Fort Worth region and hyperloop would be an exciting technology to add,” said Gary Fickes, Tarrant County Commissioner and Chair of the Regional Transportation Council. “I think the future’s very bright for hyperloop and its use in the Dallas-Fort Worth region.”
