Having said that, there are others who are keen to carry the plan out. A new company called Hyperloop Transportation Technologies Inc may be the ones who will execute the plan. Patricia Galloway, whose portfolio includes an extension of the Panama canal is one of the managers in the company.
She says that despite being a very young corporate entity that just came into being, “the feasibility is done. What we’re working on now is moving toward conceptual design.”

Galloway will team up with Marco Villa, the former missions operations director at SpaceX. More updates of the Hyperloop to come.
