BL3 Fast Travel Station

Fast Travel is a teleportation system accessible from prominent interactive Hyperion or Dahl New-U Stations. The devices seem to use the same concept as digistructing; deconstructing the traveler and reconstructing them at their destination.


Certain prominent New-U Stations scattered around Pandora have Fast Travel capability. Each Fast Travel terminal is connected to all other Fast Travel terminals in a planet-wide network. By accessing any one of them, a character can be instantaneously transported to any of the other terminals that they have previously visited. Users require a Fast Travel Pass in order to utilize Fast Travel capabilities.

At the time of the Borderlands Vault Hunters' arrival on Pandora, the Fast Travel network is shut down thanks to the machinations of the bandit lord Mad Mel. In order to activate it, a power station must be recaptured and restarted during the mission Powering The Fast Travel Network in the Dahl Headlands, upon which Lucky Zaford provides the needed Fast Travel Pass. From here, right through to the rise of Handsome Jack and beyond, any Fast Travel terminal can be activated for instant transport to new locations.

In addition to Hyperion's manufacturing of New-U and Fast Travel Stations, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel shows that at some point in the past, Dahl also mass-produced the same technology and distributed them across Elpis for their use. Hyperion is able to tap into and manipulate Elpis' network, as shown by the ability to travel from a Dahl Fast Travel terminal on Elpis to a Hyperion Fast Travel terminal on Helios. Dahl-manufactured Fast Travel networks were used to also transport cargo via digistruction, which inadvertently populated Sub-Level 13 with ghosts.

Fast Travel Access[]

To access the Fast Travel Network, players must move within activation range of the terminal and use the action key. Using the action key a second time while in the menu will initiate travel to the chosen location.

In Borderlands, the menu that appears has two tabs: the menu with the rabbit icon denotes the Fast Travel menu; the menu with the character card icon denotes the Character Customization menu. As players explore Pandora, more locations get added to the Fast Travel Network list, and each one can be accessed by scrolling through the location listing to find the desired one.

In Borderlands 2, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and Borderlands 3, only the Fast Travel menu itself is available on a Fast Travel terminal due to character customization being available at Quick Change stations. As players explore Pandora, Elpis and the Universe, more locations are added to each game's Fast Travel list and players can travel to any available one.

Travel occurs instantly in single player, or after a two second countdown in Borderlands multiplayer, which is extended to a five second countdown in Borderlands 2, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and Borderlands 3. However, travel cannot be initiated if any players are Crippled into Fight For Your Life, are in another Fast Travel or Catch-A-Ride menu, are in their inventory, or have triggered a game save.

The Fast Travel Network is a valuable part of the series, allowing players to quickly change zones to search for more loot, battle different enemies and bosses or complete or gather new missions.

Downloadable Content Access[]

Upon installing any add-on content pack in Borderlands, Borderlands 2, or Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, previously non-existent locations are added to each respective game's fast travel list.

In Borderlands, downloadable content areas can be accessed at any time after the completion of the mission Skags At The Gate, regardless of whether or not the Fast Travel Network has been activated by completing the mission Powering The Fast Travel Network. Downloadable content areas for Borderlands feature multiple locations to explore, but only the very first location visited in each downloadable content pack is available for Fast Travel.

In Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, downloadable content locations can be accessed at any time at any Fast Travel enabled Hyperion or Dahl New-U Station. Unlike Borderlands, Fast Travel is available to most (if not all) locations of each downloadable content pack.

Exit Only Fast Travel Stations[]

Some Fast Travel stations in Borderlands 2, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, and Borderlands 3 are classified as "exit only" Fast Travel stations. They offer a normal menu of destinations, but are not listed on the menus of other stations themselves. This allows one-way travel away from the exit-only Fast Travel, and is generally used to offer an exit point at the end of a story mission. An exit only Fast Travel terminal can be identified by its yellow holographic projections featuring a "no u-turn" symbol only in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and without a "no u-turn" symbol and only a no entry symbol in Borderlands 3. A regular Fast Travel terminal features blue holographic projections.

  • The 2019 release of Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition made Fast Travel terminals easier to distinguish from New U stations by adding the blue hologram of Pandora and the words "Fast Travel", a development previously seen on Fast Travel stations in Borderlands 2.
