Is Hyperloop seeking Detroit-Chicago route?

Penney Vanderbilt and KC Jones: All About Railroads

Early on, Hyperloop One has planned a Louisville-Chicago Hyperlink. Then  they planned a Pittsburgh-Columbus-Chicago Hyperlink. Now they are getting a request for a Detroit-Chicago Hyperloop! Pretty soon the “rail capital of the US” will be the “Hyperloop capital of the US”.

The Louisville Hyperloop intended to go to Randolph Street station (after dropping off/picking up freight at Gary, Indiana). No indication yet where the Pittsburgh-Columbus-Chicago will go. All the Detroit hyperloop will go is “downtown Chicago”.

“Downtown Chicago” is a huge  city. Perhaps now is the time to look ahead? Let’s not have the current problems we have with railroads.
