Hyperloop One recently announced 10 potential hyperloop routes worldwide it plans to research.

Like Elon Musk's SpaceX, the California-based startup is dedicated to building a hyperloop transit system to make travel faster and easier than ever before. The routes were publicized earlier this year via a poll called the “Hyperloop One Global Challenge.”

The 10 routes have now been compiled into a poll for the public to determine which they are most interested in. They include:

  • India: Bengaluru to Chennai, with stops in Kolar, Palamaner, Chittoor and Kanchipuram
  • Canada: Toronto to Montreal, with a stop in Ottawa
  • The U.S.: Miami to Orlando
  • The United Kingdom: Glasgow to Liverpool, with stops in Edinburgh, Newcastle, Leeds and Manchester
  • Mexico: Mexico City to Guadalajara, with stops in Queretaro and Leon
  • The United Kingdom: Edinburgh to London, with stops in Manchester and Birmingham
  • India: Mumbai to Chennai, with stops in Pune, Kolhapur, Dharwad, Tumakuru, Bengaluru, Vellore, and Sriperumbudur
  • The U.S.: Dallas, Laredo and Houston, with stops in Austin and San Antonio
  • The U.S.: Chicago, Columbus and Pittsburgh
  • The U.S.: Cheyenne, Denver and Pueblo, with stops in Fort Collins, Greeley, Vail and Colorado Springs
  • The Cheyenne-Denver-Pueblo route will be part of a feasibility study with the Colorado Department of Transportation and engineering firm Aecom, Ars Technica reported. According to Hyperloop One, this route would cover 360 million miles and would serve around 4.8 million passengers.
