Another day, another fast-flying update! Wild Rose Country’s hyper-speed FluxJet is now one more step closer to becoming a reality and TransPod shows no signs of slowing down.

Able to carry between 50 and 100 people, this “aircraft without wings” could revolutionize the way we travel and work within the province and will run much like an LRT.

According to the company, TransPod would run at 1,000 km/hr and could get people from Calgary to Edmonton in just 45 minutes – but not without the help of local organizations!

From the provincial government to the Building Trades Of Alberta, it’s going to take a lot of work to get things off the ground – but now the Clean Communities Corporation (CCC) is also on board, signing a Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) with them last week.

An Indigenous-led enterprise based in Calgary, the CCC hopes to “provide sustainable eco-tech solutions for environmental remediation and reclamation services.”

“TransPod’s partnership with CCC marks a significant step toward a sustainable future,” they wrote on their Instagram.

“By combining TransPod’s transportation technology, known for its high-speed, energy-efficient travel, with CCC’s expertise in eco-tech solutions, the collaboration aims to revolutionize transportation!”

TransPod’s co-founder and CEO, Sebastien Gendron, told Curiocity they’ve actually been working together for nearly two years now and will be collaborating with other First Nation companies, investors and people to create more jobs and training resources for those interested.

As for what else is next?

“We still need to modify the Railway Act so we can kick off the land acquisition process,” Gendron said.

“As of today the act only considers companies like CN Rail or CP Rail – it only really, considers high-speed rail companies – so it’s kind of outdated.”

In addition to this, they will also begin building a nearly 75-metre test track in hopes of validating the manufacturability of their proposed infrastructure and are planning a live demonstration of the technology before the end of 2023.

As always we’ll keep you updated as even more information comes to light – but it’s clear, Alberta. Big things are happening – and we could very well be on our way to having the first hyperloop system in the world.
