With the contribution of the LIFE programme of the European Union - LIFE14 ENV/GR/000611
Hyperloop Transportation Technologies is coming to Europe
Ministry of Economy of the Slovak Republic and Hyperloop Transportation Technologies signed Letter of Intent regarding the feasibility study to link cities of Bratislava, Vienna and Budapest by supersonic Hyperloop system last week.
The Hyperloop is a conceptual transportation system that would send passenger-filled pods through a semi-vacuum tube at speeds of 1200 kilometers per hour which would allow passengers to travel between these three cities in less than 20 minutes.
Hyperloop Transportation Technologies is one of the companies that are trying to turn Elon Musk’s vision of a super-fast, vacuum-filled, tube-based, transportation system into reality.
