On this episode of TRECcast, we talk to AECOM’s Steven Duong about hyperloop! Steven was a panelist during September’s Bank of Texas Speaker Series: Transportation Revolution, and we talk about how to develop infrastructure for technology that doesn’t exist yet, the role regulation will play in hyperloop’s rollout, and how getting from Downtown Dallas to Austin in under 20 minutes will change the way we travel and work.
Duong is a senior urban planner for AECOM’s Dallas-Fort Worth metro office. He led the company’s proposal for Texas that made Hyperloop One’s short list of initial routes for a potential 2021 rollout. Working primarily in transportation planning and urban design, Duong served as project manager for the 100 Resilient Cities: Dallas plan and the North Texas Regional Joint Land Use Study. His project work has spanned several disciplines, including international master planning, context sensitive design and complete streets, transit planning, land use scenario modeling, environmental planning and urban resiliency.
