Elon Musk has proposed a system that could be twice as fast as the worlds fastest train now. With the goal of getting from San Francisco to LA in roughly a half hour the Hyperloop needs to see speeds around 700mph. Traveling at this rate on land has some benefits like very rare motion sickness and it eliminates the variable of turbulence like an airplane experiences. The ride is expected to be very comfortable and universally available to anyone. The Hyperloop could link cities with high traffic volume between them and potentially save on travel time and costs especially when distances are less than 1k miles. Check out the blog post on Tesla Motors website that explains the Hyperloop in detail!
