India's New Hyperloop Railway Guarantees Hour-Long Cross-Country Trips

Hyperloop One intends to bring to India a solution to national traffic by way of a high-speed vacuum-based transportation system that uses pods to move passengers. The visionary company is currently in talks with the Indian government, even earlier in the year intending India to benefit from the biggest transportation overhaul in the country.

According to The Telegraph, India suffers from "deeply ingrained infrastructure problems" describing the slowness of its train system and troubled traffic development infrastructure. A change through "a futuristic form of railway technology" could be the solution for slow travel in the country.

According to Tech Crunch, Hyperloop One's CEO Rob Lloyd is communicating with the Indian government regarding its vision for India. In the probable public (government) and private (Hyperloop One) working relationship, the government would facilitate the sourcing of raw materials including steel and electronics while Hyperloop One would provide design details.

Hyperloop One uses vacuum and magnet technologies that would allow individuals and even cargo at high speeds of 700 miles per hour. The company has yet to reveal the exact routes and stations of the Hyperloop One tube circuit. It guarantees that travel at this speed would mean only hour-long trips across any location in the country.

According to Hyperloop One Executive Chairman Shervin Pishevar, India is a candidate for Hyperloop's tube networks because their vision fits with "Prime Minister Narendra Modi's hopes for a 21st century India" that would improve the country's "connection." Hyperloop One's vision -- according to Pishevar -- is to "connect the world" through its technlogy.

Pishevar is not the only one with Hyperloop One's vision but creator Elon Musk -- of Tesla and SpaceX fame -- is the one who believed in the idea in 2013 that linking US states, and in the future, the world. Hyperloop One would take his idea as its core vision for the future of international travel.
