Above and Underground
The steel hyperloop tubes can be built either above or underground.
Whether over a grassy field, or under a park, any noise that is generated is suppressed by the tube, making the hyperloop less noisy than departing and landing airplanes, conventional cars on highways, or electric trains.
The infrastructure will utilize land that is already occupied by transportation modes, such as spaces around highways, or railroad tracks. For this reason, the cityscape will remain largely untouched.
It should also be noted that compared to other land transit, the hyperloop is protected from extreme weather conditions, preventing potential delays in commuting or leisure travel.
