You could soon get from Dubai to Abu Dhabi in 12 minutes! On 15 July, DP World and Virgin Hyperloop hailed a decision by the US House of Representatives to pass legislation requesting a regulatory framework for the safe deployment of hyperloop systems. And that means, all this could soon become reality. 

Meanwhile, A Concept Of Hyperloop Hotel Will Let Guests Travel In Luxury Rooms– here’s how.

Earlier, in January, the hyperloop capsule was dispatched from the assembly facility in Spain to Toulouse, France, to be tested and optimised, before it becomes fully functional in the Emirates. The hyperloop is said to connect Al Ain, Dubai and Abu Dhabi at unimaginable speeds, safety and sustainability. The first 10 km stretch is said to be ready by 2020. The loop can seat about 10 people in each pod and is estimated to take 10,000 passengers per hour to and from Dubai.

Besides, the hyperloops not only carry people. The super fast transport system will also carry cargo and goods that need to be delivered. And that means, your online shopping will reach you in hours, instead of days. Virgin Hyperloop is collaborating with not just UAE, but also with Saudi Arabia and India. It recently conducted the world’s first national-level study in partnership with the Saudi Ministry of Transport.

Jay Walder, Virgin Hyperloop CEO, said: “DP World has been a key enabler of developing this technology for deployment, and the inclusion of hyperloop transportation in this legislation is a great moment in history for us and for DP World”.

With all this in store, Dubai’s Skyline Will Soon Witness A Massive Change. 

What Is Hyperloop?

Hyperloop is a transport system that works with the help of electric propulsion and electromagnetic levitation. You know what that means, this could be the answer to saving the environment which is struggling due to the amount of pollution and deforestation. And not only does it help with that but it also promises employment for people throughout the duration of the project. And to top it all off this is the first new mode of transportation in roughly 100 years. We are officially in the future, you guys!

Mumbai- Pune To Soon Be Connected By Hyperloop

Virgin Hyperloop One is on its way to set up a hyperloop between Mumbai and Pune which will cut down your travel time from two hours to thirty minutes. After kicking off a global challenge in 2016 to find the most promising routes for a hyperloop, Virgin received the most number of entries from India and zeroed down on the stretch between Mumbai and Pune which sees roughly 150 million passenger trips annually. With a sustainable and uber-cool way of transportation, we can’t wait for the hyperloop between Mumbai and Pune turn into reality.
