Last week, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan gave the wealthy businessman Elon Musk permission to dig tunnels for an underground transit system called a hyperloop. The long term goal is to create a transit system that can transport people from Washington to New York in under 30 minutes with stops in Baltimore and Philadelphia. At the same time, proponents of a “maglev,” a high speed rail technology that uses magnetic levitation to move trains faster than any other method, are pushing for the construction of a Baltimore-Washington connector. We discuss how each of these projects could affect the region and the relationship between two large urban areas.
