THE BULLET TRAIN THAT MAY COME TO MIAMI SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED ITS SECOND PHASE OF TESTING, ACHIEVING HISTORIC TEST SPEEDS IN THE NEVADA DESERT. This incredible train travelled almost a distance of 500-meter (1640-foot) DevLoop track in the desert, according to the Hyperloop One announcement on Aug. 2.

The Hyperloop One XP-1, the company's first-generation pod, accelerated for 300 meters and glided above the track using magnetic levitation before braking and coming to a gradual stop.

"This is the beginning, and dawn of a new era of transportation," Executive Chairman and Co-Found of Hyperloop One said. "We've reached historic speeds of 310 km an hour (nearly 200 miles per hour), and we're excited to finally show the world the XP-1 going into the Hyperloop One tube. When you hear the sound of the Hyperloop One, you hear the sound of the future."

All components, including the highly efficient electric motor, advanced controls and power electronics, custom magnetic levitation and guidance and so on were tested successfully.

Miami, Florida is one of the 11 proposed routes in the U.S. for the autonomous train concept. If it did come to Florida, the proposed 257-mile route would connect to Orlando International Airport to Port Miami via a 26-minute ride.

All Aboard Florida sounds obsolete compared to this astounding bullet train.
