Ever imagined travelling by a train that reaches the destination within few minutes of the start. Yes! To make it really possible here comes the latest transport system named Hyperloop Transportation System (HTS) which promises a speed up to 1216 km/hour. This transport system would take just a fraction of time taken by the flights and also charges lesser ticket price than the air ticket.
It would be so amazing for you to travel to another state for breakfast and head towards your office in your state in time. This would come true as soon as the centre nods for the supersonic land travel HTS system. This would cost $1 billion which is much lesser than the Bullet train project which costs $12 billion which is expected to be ready by 2023. This is a high-pressure capsule which would travel in a partially vacuumed tube at speeds up to 1216 km/hour transporting people from one point to another in much lesser time i.e. almost over half the time compared to the time taken by the flights. So, in less than 30 minutes you can cover 345 km travelling by HTS. The best part of it is it completely relies on renewable energy and has solar panels on the top of the tube and wind turbines in the pylons which generate surplus energy.
Hyperloop Transpo-wrtation Technologies (HTT) is developing the HTS which has a linear motor that provides powerful propulsion and it gets multiplied significantly in the vacuum tube resulting high speeds. Bibop Gresta, co-founding chairman of Hyperloop Transpo-wrtation Technologies (HTT) submitted a letter of intent to Union transport minister Nitin Gadkari. Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed his interest on the proposal and invited the concept to be tested first between Mumbai and Pune which makes India the first country to take such concept to test. With 800 engineers including 25 from India would be working on this test project and the transport system is supported by pylons covering a distance of 100 feet between the Mumbai and Pune. The test project would take 38 months and covers a road distance of 149 km. This project would be set in different states and make the public transport faster and cheaper never like before. This project would not take any additional land and has minimal interference with the existing facilities.
