Texas could be the site of a new, high-speed transportation system.

Earlier this year, a start-up company called Hyperloop One launched a global challenge to crowdsource route proposals for a Hyperloop system in the United States.

After receiving over 2,600 submissions, they selected 11 finalists to present their vision in Washington, D.C. Two of the proposed routes include Texas.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk could make it possible to get from San Antonio to Houston in 20 minutes.
