Now travel Mumbai to Pune in just 13 minutes instead of 3 hours! In order to assess the chances of implementing Hyperloop transportation system between Mumbai and Pune, The Maharashtra government has entered into a partnership with Virgin Hyperloop.
A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed with Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (PMRDA). If this happens, the journey time of Mumbai-Pune will reduce to 13-14 minutes from 3 hrs by car.
Hyperloop is a new mode of transportation, which carries passenger freights in pods. Via electro-magnetic propulsion through low-pressure tubes and the speed could reach 1200 km/hr. The speed that Hyperloop technology can deliver is the speed, which is two to three times faster than high-speed rail.
A Hyperloop route requires high-density traffic to become viable as a means of rapid public transit. Mumbai and Pune, the most and seventh most populous cities in India respectively, have the potential to provide an optimal route with a high density. Bangaluru-Chennai may also be connected with Hyperloop. If the happens, you can travel 350km in just 20 mins.
