A Hyperloop Terminal ProposalKyle Maxey

A few weeks back Elon Musk unveiled his highly anticipated Hyperloop transport concept. While the billionaire entrepreneur did create a framework for his Hyperloop system, designer Serge Roux thought he could create a more functional arrival and departure terminal.
Roux's proposal operates similar to a gondola system and involves and endless loop of “cars” moving in and out of an Oscar Niemeyer inspired terminal. According to Roux his design could accommodate the same volume of passengers as Musk’s original terminal, but it would require half the space. That means Roux’s terminal could fit in a footprint roughly the size of New York’s Grand Central Station.
Now, all we need is for someone to pony up the cash to build this next-gen transportation system. Any takers?
