If you are like most, you probably find air travel to be a stressful experience.

There’s the commute to the airport, the long lines to check your bag, the security check, and then once you’re finally on the plane, there’s the tight squeeze of sitting for several hours with barely any legroom.

And yet, air travel is really our only option for traveling hundreds of miles quickly. But the Hyperloop could change that.

The Hyperloop is a tubular transport system that carries passengers in capsules at speeds reaching more than 700 miles per hour. Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk first proposed the idea in a white paper published in 2013 and made his research public so others could pursue developing the concept. The LA-based startup Hyperloop One is doing just that.

But Hyperloop One doesn’t just want to build a system that is as fast as a plane. The company wants to create an entirely new travel experience, one that is a lot less stressful and a lot more convenient.

“It’s not about getting somewhere, it’s about being somewhere. We’re not trying to optimize the transportation experience, we are trying to eliminate it,” Brogan BamBrogan, Hyperloop One’s co-founder and chief technology officer, said at a company event earlier this month

How exactly does it plan on doing this? 

BamBrogan shared with Tech Insider four ways the Hyperloop will revolutionize all aspects of transportation.
