Hyperloop one

United States

Hyperloop is a new mode of transportation that moves freight, people quickly, safely, on-demand, and direct from origin to destination. Passengers or cargo are loaded into the Hyperloop vehicle and accelerate gradually via electric propulsion through a low-pressure tube. The vehicle floats above the track using magnetic levitation and glides at airline speeds for long distances due to ultra-low aerodynamic drag. Hyperloop One systems will be built on columns or tunnelled below ground to avoid dangerous grade crossings and wildlife. It is fully autonomous and enclosed, eliminating pilot error and weather hazards. It is safe and clean, with no direct carbon emissions.   

There are few key differences from a high-speed rail another fast land based transportation system. It is two to three times faster than the fastest high-speed rail. It’s on-demand and direct unlike  high speed rail that have to follow a schedule and typically have multiple stops. Hyperloop leaves when you are ready to go, and pods can depart up to several times per minute and can transport passengers and cargo direct to their destination with no stops along the way. Hyperloop one claims to be less expensive than High-speed rail though with the technology still not having any full-scale implementation experiences difficult to confirm independently.

It is environmentally friendly, with a smaller environmental impact, more efficient energy consumption and no direct emissions or noise. 

Max Speed - 1080 km per hour
