Yes, a huge new project brought to you by the same people who can't afford or even try to maintain an interstate highway and all part of the pitiful effort to attract the new Amazon HQ, brought to you by the same people who don't have the savvy or intelligence to put together a serious process for a proposal for an airport terminal.
At least these folks are honest enough to put a "hype" in hyperloop!
More grandiose fantacizing with that bottomless pit of taxpayer money.
You mean to say it doesn't even have a stop in Warrenton?
How's Mike's new taxpayer-subsidized hotel coming?

Three stops in Columbia? A town with a perennial population of 120,000 and a base pop. of 80k or so. It takes what? 10 minutes to drive from I-70 in the North to Nifong down South. This is like the joke that keeps on giving.

Talk about a target for terrorism!
And besides, they are forgetting how much the rest of the State hates St. Louis and KC, why would they support this?
It has no benefits for anyone outside of these two locations.
