Among thousands of applicants, Hyperloop One has chosen 10 routes in four countries including the US, Mexico, India, Canada, and the UK.
In total, they would cross 53 urban centres and span a total of 4,121 miles (6,600 km), connecting almost 150 million people.
The firm, which Elon Musk is not associated with, plans to have three of the routes up and running in a commercial capacity by 2021.
A number of companies will be involved in delivering the routes themselves, and the technology behind them.
Hyperloop is a proposed method of propelling passengers and freight in pods through low pressure tubes at speeds of up to 670mph (1,000 kph).
It was unveiled by Elon Musk in 2013, although he is no longer involved in the project.
A video teasing the construction process shows a glimpse at the inside of a futuristic capsule that could fit 28-40 passengers at a time.Scroll down for video Hyperloop is a proposed method of travel that would transport people at roughly 670mph (1,000 kph) between distant locations.It was unveiled by Elon Musk in 2013, who at the time said it could take passengers the 380 miles (610km) from LA to San Francisco in 30 minutes - half the time it takes a plane.The paper adds: 'It will be critical for the success of the systems to demonstrate to passengers that Hyperloop systems will operate with the highest levels of safety and reliability.US:- Cheyenne to Denver to Puelbo (360 miles / 580 km)- Chicago to Columbus to Pittsburgh (488 miles / 785 km)- Miami to Orlando (257 miles / 413 km)- Dallas to Houston (640 miles / 1,000 km)UK:- Edinburgh to London (414 miles / 660 km)- Glasgow to Liverpool (339 miles / 545 km)- Cardiff to Glasgow (657 miles /1,057 km) India:- Bengaluru to Chennai (208 miles / 335 km)- Mumbai to Chennai (685 miles / 1,100 km)Other:- Mexico City to Guadalajara (330 miles / 530 km)- Toronto to Montreal (400 miles / 640 km) 'Similarly it will be important to ensure that passengers do not feel unduly confined within passenger pods and do not experience excessive or uncomfortable g-forces.'As a result of these issues, the Df T suggests that it is likely to be 'at least a couple of decades' before an operational system is ready.
In the system, passengers and cargo will be loaded into a pod, and accelerated gradually via electric propulsion through a low-pressure tube.
