THE FUTURE OF FAST TRAVEL – On 8 November, Hyperloop One signed an agreement with Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) to explore high-speed routes in the United Arab Emirates “to figure out where and how to build what would likely be a hybrid passenger-freight system in Emirates.”

In other words, it’s going to work out how to turn the theory of Hyperloop into a reality.

“Dubai makes perfect sense for Hyperloop One because this is the 21st century's global transport hub and its leaders understand that Hyperloop One is ushering in the next era of transportation,” said Shervin Pishevar, Executive Chairman.

Hyperloop One reveals plans to take people from Dubai to Abu Dhabi in just 12 minutes, a trip that currently takes about two hours by car.
