HyperloopTT reveals their full-scale 320m passenger system to officials from the United States Department of Transportation in Toulouse, France and presents the first certification guidelines for Hyperloop systems to the USDOT in Washington, D.C.

PLAYA VISTA, California, June 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Hyperloop Transportation Technologies met with officials from the United States Department of Transportation at HyperloopTT's research facilities in Toulouse, France. The officials were able to see the world's first completed full-scale track system as it undergoes optimization and integration prior to the construction of the commercial system in Abu Dhabi. With tubes assembled and pumps installed, HyperloopTT is now beginning the process of integrating their full-scale passenger capsule for human trials in 2020.

Additionally, members of HyperloopTT met with the USDOT at the agency's offices in Washington D.C. presenting a technical overview of Hyperloop technology and the certification guideline completed by TÜV SÜD. In May of 2019, HyperloopTT and TUV SUD presented these same guidelines to the European Commission.

In March of 2019, the USDOT announced a new council that focuses on facilitating the development of new transportation technologies like Hyperloop called NETT (Non-traditional and Emerging Transportation Technology). HyperloopTT is sharing their expertise on how best to safely regulate these technologies with the governments of the world including the European Commission and the United States.

"Today marks an important development for this company," said Dirk Ahlborn, CEO of Hyperloop Transportation Technologies. "Not only are we building the only truly full-scale, insured, and safety certified system in the world, we are advancing our efforts to move the Hyperloop forward by sharing our technological experience and our perspective on regulatory frameworks."

"We are moving ever closer to the moment when we will move people in the Hyperloop for the first time," added Bibop Gresta, Chairman of HyperloopTT. "And by sharing our insights with our government colleagues in the United States and Europe, we are furthering our goal of creating the safest and most efficient form of transportation the world has ever seen."
