I don't know the geography well enough but want to look into it. Seems more workable than the 30th Street area. One of the key companies working on it started building the first full size passenger pod.

Test tracks and test runs are well underway. ETA is hard. There are a lot of regulatory hoops to jump through and funding as well. The first full run between two cities likely would not be in the U.S.
