Feasible, yes
Practical, no

Practical YES.

1. Rail takes up to much land, where this hyperloop takes up existing land between the highway.

2. With the Alberta climate, keep rail clean and maintenance would be very expensive. The hyperloop would not be impacted by weather.

Calgary to Edmonton in less than 1 hour.. ROCKS!!

Alberta really needs to look to the future, the Premier has fucked this province.. We need a Government run refinery, and a nuclear plant for energy. We need more wind turbines.. and geo thermal

45 minutes wasted checking in, waiting and boarding, half hour wasted unboarding. Total 1.25 hrs wasted plus one hr trip, with no vehicle at the departing end. Might as well drive up, cheaper and almost as fast.

Most of the traffic between Edmonton-Calgary is transportation goods traffic, the need for people to go to Edmonton-Calgary is minimal.

Hyperloop requires a vacuum tube, big problems with this in the wintertime.

Two things you don't need is a nuke plant and government ruined refinery. Gas is expensive enough now.
