Get the first look of the UAE Hyperloop taking shape.
UAE announced the beginning of the Hyperloop project, earlier this year. With the Hyperloop people can travel from Dubai to Abu Dhabi within 12 minutes. The company in charge of the project recently released the first images of the development site.
A Los Angeles-based company, Hyperloop One, introduced the world’s fastest mode of transportation, the Hyperloop system, in 2015, which allows one to travel 1200 KM per hour (Faster than Boeing 747 which is 825 Kilometer per hour.)
So traveling from Dubai to Abu Dhabi will only take about 12 minutes.
At the Middle East Rail annual conference in Dubai on Tuesday (8th March 2017), Hyperloop One CEO Rob Lloyd shared some photos on how construction is progressing at the first ever Hyperloop test site in the Nevada desert, which is 30 minutes from Las Vegas.
When will the Hyperloop be open to the public:
The public can expect to travel by the Hyperloop within the next five years, after signing an agreement with the Roads and Transport Authority. (RTA).

How the Hyperloop will change the future:
A Hyperloop system could change the way we travel around the world, says Bjarke Ingels, the founder of BIG – a design firm working on the project:
“Collective commuting with individual freedom at near supersonic speed: we are heading for a future where our mental map of the city is completely reconfigured, as our habitual understanding of distance and proximity – time and space – is warped by this new form of travel.”
Stay tuned for further updates, and the latest on the Hyperloop developments...
