CHICAGO - CLEVELAND - PITTSBURGH
In 2017 the Ohio state legislature passed a Resolution in support of evaluating and exploring opportunities for potential development of hyperloop corridors. The Resolution encouraged working collaboratively giving companies, institutions and talent the opportunity to participate in researching, developing, producing and constructing a hyperloop transportation system.
In January of 2018, a bipartisan group of nine Congressional leaders representing five states, sent a formal letter to President Donald Trump requesting infrastructure funding to further develop hyperloop technology.
In February of 2018, a press conference was held at the Great Lakes Science Center in Cleveland, Ohio to sign America's first Hyperloop Private-Public Partnership.

“Pittsburgh has always been an important part of the Great Lakes Hyperloop network,
and it proved to be beneficial for both regions to advance the city to the
first phase of our feasibility study.”
Gallucci added, “We believe in investing in projects that promote mobility options and improve quality of life. What Hyperloop represents to Northeast Ohio and the entire
Great Lakes Megaregion is so much more than just speed and efficiency.
It opens our region to the rest of the Midwest, connecting us all in a
network of technology, resources, people, and jobs."
