It is now possible to travel from Dubai to Abu Dhabi in merely 12-minutes as the Hyperloop One is all set to introduce the world’s first ever operational Hyperloop system in Dubai very soon.
With this move, you can travel between the two cities by sitting in special pods which travel at a distance of 1,200 kilometres per hour, which is more than the speed of a Boeing. The Hyperloop is a company based in Los Angeles, California which is working towards commercialising the Hyperloop system to transport passengers and goods at the speed of a plane and also at a relatively cheaper cost.
So you might wonder how are they going to do it? The Hyperloop system will make use of a set of pod-like structures which will transport the passengers within a large tube that runs between the two destinations. The passengers can sit comfortably in these pods and travel at a supersonic speed.
The current plan is to connect the Burj Khalifa, the Dubai Airport, Al Maktoum Airport, Dubai Marina, Abu Dhabi Airport and the centre of Abu Dhabi which spans the distance of about 150 km between the two sister cities.
This endeavour will not only be an economic advantage, but it will also be a social blessing as it will provide faster access to hospitals and schools.
