Hyperloop Transportation Plans to Be Unveiled

David Paul Morris/Bloomberg via Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- It may not be faster than a speeding bullet, but Elon Musk's Hyperloop transportation plan for shuttling travelers between Los Angeles and San Francisco comes close.

Musk, the CEO of Tesla Motors and SpaceX, has tweeted that he'll reveal more about this high-speed system on Monday.

Back at the All Things D conference in June, Musk described Hyperloop as "a cross between a Concord, a rail gun and an air hockey table."

The Hyperloop is said to go from one city to the other in less than half an hour, making better time than commercial airplanes flying between the two California cities. No announcement has been made on exactly how much Hyperloop would cost commuters, but Musk has previously said that it would be cheaper than today's airline and train tickets. He's also said that his project would be solar powered.

Even though Musk has proposed a design for Hyperloop, he’s said he does not plan to pursue the transportation system beyond that and that his focus remains on SpaceX and Tesla.
