Hyperloop One announced Thursday it has chosen 10 routes around the world to study for possible construction of a high-speed, tube-based rail transportation system.

Some of the routes came from the Hyperloop One Global Challenge, an idea-gathering program that asked for route ideas and suggestions.

So far, a feasibility study is planned for the Colorado Pueblo-Denver-Cheyenne route in partnership with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and multinational engineering firm Aecom. The route would be 360 miles and serve up to 4.8 million people, Ars Technica reported.

“We are excited to partner with Hyperloop One in exploring the next step of feasibility of this innovated technology, potentially transforming how Colorado moves,” CDOT Executive Director Shailen Bhatt said in a statement, The Verge reported. “The Hyperloop technology could directly align with our goals of improving mobility and safety in Colorado, and we have been encouraged by the continued progress the technology is taking.”

Other routes include Dallas to Houston (Texas), Miami to Orlando (Florida), Chicago-Columbus-Pittsburgh (Illinois-Ohio-Pennsylvania), and Edinburgh to London — one of two in the U.K. Two others are in India, one in Canada, and one in Mexico, the Daily Mail reported.

Hyperloop technology still has a ways to go in development. A recent full-scale test in Nevada saw speeds of almost 200 miles per hour, but that is far from the 760 miles per hour envisioned by Elon Musk in 2013 when he birthed the concept.

The final 10 possible locations were narrowed down from 2,600 entries. In total, 53 urban centers would be spanned and almost 150 million people would have access to the routes.

Hyperloop One plans to have three routes running by 2021, the Daily Mail reported.
