MUMBAI: A US-based firm developing a near-supersonic mode of onground passenger travel on Sunday signed an ‘intent agreement’ with Maharashtra to build a transport system between Mumbai and Pune which aims to bring down travel time between the two cities to 20 minutes from three hours. Virgin Hyperloop One’s (VHO’s) chairman Richard Branson, who is in Mumbai for the Magnetic Maharashtra summit, said the route for the hyperloop system will pass through the proposed Navi Mumbai International Airport. The fare is too early to decide, but will probably be close to airfares.
周日，一家美国公司与马哈拉施特拉邦签署一份“ 意向协议书 ”，计划建造孟买至普纳的超级高铁，力争把两地的通勤时间从3小时降至20分钟。
“The hyperloop will reduce accidents. Teams are working to study the feasibility of the route,” Branson said. Officials said the final feasibility study may be completed in six months, and construction of a test track can start in early 2019 and finish by 2021-end. If the tests are successful, it would take about four years to build the entire Mumbai-Navi Mumbai-Pune track.

All possible only because of Modi ji...whereas scumgress would only be taking under the table cuts and keep the project on paper for 10 years before declaring it bankrupt due to cost overruns...vote for Modi in 2019!

Hyperloop is the true giant leap forward...far better than bullet train. But the anti development opposition led by the Congo's and Commies will never allow the nation to take such a leap. They will keep citing farmer suicide, demo, GST etc and go ahead with their anarchist agenda.

Hyperloop is the way to go forward, much cheaper than bullet trains. Well done Modi, my only problem is those zopadpatti people who may start objecting if their houses needed to shifted for this project.

The estimated cost of the route is around Rs 20,000 crore, which officials say works out cheaper than other forms of high-speed on-ground travel.

If the Hyper Loop can travel faster and cheaper than the proposed Bullet train between Mumbai and Ahmedabad, the proposed bullet train project has already become a white elephant. For the cost of the bullet train project between M & A, we could cover almost 5 times the distance with the Hyper Loop.
