Business Insider is reporting that Elon Musk’s Hyperloop puts other kinds of transportation to shame.

Whether it’s for speed, frequency, or capacity, the Hyperloop — at least on paper — makes other ways of traveling look inefficient.

A recently published report by SupraStudio, which is a studio at UCLA’s architecture school, shows just how the Hyperloop stacks up to its competition. And the results are impressive.

The report shows that the Hyperloop could potentially travel at speeds comparable to air flight at around 500-500 mph, could carry 840 passengers per hour, make frequent stops anywhere from 30 seconds to 20 minutes.

Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, which is one of the companies planning to soon build a Hyperloop test track in California, collaborated with Suprastudio to help come up with the data for the report.
