With Hyperloop’s emerging technology and the wonders it proposes, it is imperative to understand how this new transportation will affect the built environment. The Rocky Mountain Hyperloop Consortium is taking this into account with a 20,000 mile hyperloop network that will stretch across the nation. Rebecca Leonard wants the right people to be involved in this project, the ones who know the impact of infrastructure on people.
