A few reasons, like the amount air that has to be removed from the tube, the expansion and contraction of the tube and the number of expansion joints required, the problems of keeping the tube totally sealed and the dangers if the seal is broken. Best to watch the vid when you can.

Don't get me wrong, I think we Humans are ingenious and none of the problems highlighted in the vid are insurmountable, but it may not be cost effective.

I can't take the time at work to watch the video, but it sounds as if this form of transporation would have as many checks and balances as a space mission launch from a safety perspective.

I think that is awesome!  It's like the wave of the future....transportation that efficient?!!  30 minutes from LA to SF....awesome!

Then they stop at every city with a population in excess of two like the Greyhound does, and it will take sixteen days to get from SF to LA in the hyper speed pod.
