Arrivo, a US-based transportation company, has partnered with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and E-470 Public Highway Authority to develop Denver’s first-ever high-speed Super Urban Network.

The new network will be based on a hyperloop transportation concept, which will minimise the congestion by restricting the speed of vehicles up to 200mph. It will also reduce the travel to all destinations in Denver to just 20 minutes.

The network will include a new layer for transportation, which will link the existing roadways, city metros and automobiles.

As part of the collaboration, Arrivo and CDOT will conduct a feasibility study for the construction of the project between Denver International Airport and Aurora Commerce Centre in the first phase.
