Ya definitely and it won't be as late as 3000, right now it exists as an evacuated tube transport which is a combination of tube and rail method which is basically maglev train travelling through an artificial vacuum. There is a company called ET3 aiming for it. There is another company which patented with the name 'aqua-terra planetary transport. I dunno maybe sometime during mid century we will start building prototypes of tube transport of people. basically doing away with airliners.





Also the Trans-Atlantic Tunnel might become another example.
