In Progress: Hyperloop One Transport, India Team Visits Test Site in US

Hyperloop One Transport system in India will soon become a reality with representatives visiting the test site.

The Hyperloop travel between Pune and Mumbai is progressing and becoming a step closer to reality. This 1200 km/h hyperloop transport system in India was recently visited by the Maharashtra Chief Minister as well as representatives from the State Government. There was also a live test demo of the said transport system.

Once finished, the hyperloop will be connected to Mumbai and Pune, Navi Mumbai International Airport and the travel time between these two points will be shortened to 25 minutes.

Just to give an insight on travel time, currently it takes about 3.5 hours to take the trip from Mumbai and Pune by car. Train takes 5-6 hours and as for plane flights, there’s only 2 flights a week available.

Once this is completed, the 25 minutes is really a big difference and would revolutionize the travel of 26 million passengers in the region. This would then provide social and economic value to the community due to the fast mobility.
