Virgin Hyperloop has completed its first ever passenger ride after 400 test runs.
In a Hyperloop system, a single trip between New York and Washington would only take 30 minutes.
This is four times faster than a high-speed train and twice as fast as a commercial jet flight.
The futuristic transport concept involves super high-speed pods inside vacuum tubes carrying passengers.
Hyperloop has tested its first ever journey with passengers travelling from Nevada.

Trial passengers Sara Luchian and Josh Giegel - both work at Virgin Hyperloop.
They have travelled in the Virgin Hyperloop— riding the system's levitating pod through a vacuum tube at speeds of over 100 mph.
The company previously did more than 400 test runs without passengers.
Virgin Hyperloop envisions a future, where floating pods packed with passengers and cargo hurtle through vacuum tubes at 600mph or faster.
In order to make this dream come true, Hyperloop travel systems would require getting planning permission and constructing vast networks of tubes for every travel path.
