India’s first hyperloop transportation facility is likely to come up in Andhra Pradesh. It will take 6 minutes to travel 40-km distance between Vijayawada and Amaravati. USA based Virgin Hyperloop company is testing the mass transit type in Nevada deserts in Las Vegas. The wheel-less pods travel in a vacuum tube at speeds nearly 1000 km.
AP government is studying feasibilities to introduce it in the state. The propelling pods use magneticl levitation and travel at high speeds as there would be negligable friction and air resistance in the vacuum tubes. AP government wants to implement hyperloop 700 km in phases across the state.
