DESCRIPTION
 
.
FR-EE, Fernando Romero Enterprise, Mexloop, Hyperloop, Mexico City, Guadalajara, LeonA Mexican consortium consisting of the top names in infrastructure development has been named a winner of the Hyperloop One Global Challenge, besting thousands to become one of only ten proposals world-wide that were selected for development in partnership with Hyperloop One:
  • Over 2,600 entrants responded to open competition seeking the world’s most comprehensive commercial, transport, economic, and policy cases for hosting the first Hyperloop networks.

  • Mexloop proposal would create a new ‘Megalopolis’ of 42 million—growing to 60 million by 2050—by linking four of Central Mexico’s major metropolises, including the capital and its two most populous cities, and el Bajio, its fastest growing region.

  • Mexloop will further accelerate the region’s powerhouse economy and booming automobile, aeronautic, pharmaceutical, technology, and services industries, evolving its busiest supply chains and trade corridors and transforming its economy, spurring innovation and development, and creating job opportunities.

  • A Mexloop Hyperloop corridor will help to alleviate traffic in the world’s most congested city and the surrounding megaregion, integrating with other transport modes and reducing travel times between Mexico City and Guadalajara to 38 minutes at speeds of over 1,000 km/h / 600 mph.

  • The proposal has attracted considerable public-sector support and received an endorsement from Cámara Mexicana de la Industria de la Construcción / Mexico Construction Industry Chamber's (CMIC), including its inclusion in its Infrastructure 2030 Plan.
FR-EE, Fernando Romero Enterprise, Mexloop, Hyperloop, Mexico City, Guadalajara, LeonMexloop's winning corridor for the Hyperloop One Global Challenge provides an in-depth look at the potentials of developing a groundbreaking new transport system with state-of-the-art intermodal hubs and transit oriented development across central Mexico. Linking the country’s major population, cultural, industrial, and manufacturing centers, the proposal harnesses over 30% of its population and nearly 40% of its GDP, connecting Mexico City - the capital and most populous city - with the El Bajio cities of Queretaro, Leon and Guadalajara into a new ‘Megalopolis’ and reinforces its status as Mexico’s fastest growing and one of the most dynamic regions in Latin America. The proposal takes an approach to locating stations and leveraging development to further diversify and strengthen its array of manufacturing and technology industries, reinforce its network of top universities and R&D centers, and create radically new opportunities for people to live, work, and be anywhere, in minutes.

The system promises to enhance Mexico's global transport and logistics performance and secure the country as a leader in autonomous mobility and other innovative transportation-related research, particularly when considered in tandem with the construction of Mexico City’s New International Airport, and the country’s nearly $600 billion in public infrastructure development.

In naming the consortium's proposal a winner, Hyperloop One lauded Mexloop for its comprehensive team structure and public-sector engagement, as well as the strategy of building on its proposal to catalyze a strategic, high-technology hub in the Bajio region, centered around next-generation transportation industries such as aerospace engineering, autonomous software, and advanced and precision manufacturing to create a new Hyperloop industry, and identifying opportunities to build and develop an Hyperloop knowledge ecosystem through university partnerships, training and certification programs, and professional development. Combined, these would form the basis of a thriving new transport technology industry and supply chain, and a platform for Hyperloop One to test, create, manufacture, develop, and export its revolutionary new technology to the rest of the world by partnering with Mexico’s industry leaders.
Fast Facts
FR-EE, Fernando Romero Enterprise, Mexloop, Hyperloop, Mexico City, Guadalajara, Leon
  • Mexloop Route Cities: Mexico City-Santiago de Querétaro-León-Guadalajara.

  • ROWs: Mexloop proposal harnesses prior studies and ROWs from the unrealized Mexico City – Queretaro HSR line and existing ROWs to fast track the corridor’s first leg.

  • Phase 2: Exploring potential to extend east and west to the Ports of Manzanillo and Veracruz, and northward to Monterrey and Nuevo Laredo / Laredo at the Mexico-US Border.

  • Next steps: feasibility study, business model, technical solution, and certification process.

  • Potential Costs: Early estimates suggest a Hyperloop would cost approximately 2/3 the cost or less of a typical High-Speed-Rail (HSR) project. The cost of a trip on proposed Hyperloop One corridors around the world is highly competitive, generally in line with that of a bus ticket, car trip, or low-cost airline ticket.
About Hyperloop One
FR-EE, Fernando Romero Enterprise, Mexloop, Hyperloop, Mexico City, Guadalajara, Leon
  • Hyperloop is the first new major mode of transportation in 100 years. It’s designed to be safe, energy efficient, and reliable. It will take you directly to your destination at speeds of up to 700 mph, above land or underground.

  • Hyperloop One is reinventing transportation by developing the world's first Hyperloop, an integrated structure to move passengers and cargo between two points immediately, safely, efficiently, and sustainably.

  • The Hyperloop One team has the world's leading experts in engineering, technology, and transport project delivery, working in tandem with global partners and investors to make Hyperloop a reality, now. Headquartered in Los Angeles, the company is led by CEO Rob Lloyd and co-founded by Executive Chairman Shervin Pishevar and President of Engineering Josh Giegel.

  • Hyperloop One recently made history with the world's first successful Hyperloop full systems test, followed just a few months later with the world’s first autonomous pod successfully completing its inaugural test run. These two groundbreaking efforts successfully deliver upon Hyperloop One’s Proof of Concept ahead of schedule, and set the stage for proof of operations testing by 2020
