SkyTran Colorado staff told the Daily Camera that the system would use two passenger pods powered by a magnetic field, and that speeds could reach as fast as 150 mph.

The $250 million project would be built with funding from private investors.

An informational meeting is set for this Thursday at the Boulder Public Library.
