Hyperloop Altiplano

As the first new major mode of transportation in over 100 years, carrying passengers and cargo directly to their destinations at speeds of up to 700 mph, above land or underground, and point-to-point without stops, the system promises to enhance Mexico’s global transport and logistics performance, and secure the country a position as a leader in autonomous mobility and other innovative transportation-related research. With the recent and successful completion of its Proof of Concept, the stage is now set for proof of operations testing in 2020 with new corridors coming online in subsequent years, including ones in Mexico.

Mexloop’s proposed Phase 1 Hyperloop Corridor covers the country’s major population, cultural, industrial and manufacturing centers, connecting Mexico City, the capital and most populous city in Mexico and one of the most important financial centers in the Americas, with the Bajio cities of Querétaro, León and Guadalajara. This vigorous services region and economic powerhouse has been recognized as the most dynamic in Latin America, with a diverse array of industries including technology, automotive, and aerospace, as well as many of its top universities and R&D centers. Mexloop Stations are integrated with airports, city centers, plus new development, and are envisioned as multimodal terminals accommodating future forms of transport. Future phases extend the region’s supply chain, connecting the ports of Manzanillo and Veracruz, as well as a corridor that branches northward to the United States, Mexico’s top trading partner. Additional corridors around the country with significant government support are also being studied.

In naming the Mexloop consortium’s proposal one of its winners, Hyperloop One noted the team as the most comprehensive it had seen, consisting of Mexico’s design and thought leaders, experts in infrastructure and transportation investment and operations, top real estate, economics and management consultants, innovation agencies and think tanks, with the support of local, state, and federal government.

Mexloop was also lauded for a proposal that extended far beyond a corridor, recognizing the potential to catalyze a strategic, hightechnology hub in the Bajio region, centered around next-generation transportation industries such as aerospace engineering, autonomous software, and advanced and precision manufacturing. Part of its value proposition included the opportunity to build and develop a Hyperloop knowledge ecosystem in Mexico through university partnerships, training and certification programs, and professional development. Combined, these would form the basis of a Hyperloop industry and supply chain, where Hyperloop One components are developed and exported to the rest of the world.

With Mexloop’s recent inclusion as a priority project in the Cámara Mexicana de la Industria de la Construcción / Mexico Construction Industry Chamber’s (CMIC) 2030 Sustainable Infrastructure Proposal, Mexloop and Hyperloop One are now partnering with government and the private sector to produce a business model, technical solution, and certification process for the development of a Hyperloop corridor in Mexico.
