Will Dubai be the first stop of the Hyperloop?

The Hyperloop One has the intention to connect two Emirates; Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The Hyperloop will consume only 12 minutes to take you to Abu Dhabi.

Hyperloop is a new invention for moving people and things from one place to another, from one country to another. Hyperloop can move people and things safely and quickly. It has minimal impact on the atmosphere since Hyperloop system uses the electric propulsion for accelerating the vehicle through a tube in a low-pressure environment. The autonomous vehicle levitates slightly above the track and glides at faster-than-airline speeds over long distances. The Hyperloop One said that they eliminate direct emissions, noise, delay, weather concerns and pilot error. It’s the next mode of transportation.

The Hyperloop system could transform the way of travelling in near future. The Hyperloop One has the intention to connect two emirates of the United Arab Emirates; Dubai and Abu Dhabi. These two emirates have the distance of 150KM from the centre of both Emirates.

The map is revealing that the Hyperloop will connect Dubai Airport, the Burj Khalifa, Dubai Marina, Al Maktoum Airport, Abu Dhabi Airport and the centre of Abu Dhabi.

According to TechCrunch, Hyperloop One tells TechCrunch it might be building its crazy fast transportation system at the Jebel Ali port in Dubai if all goes according to plan. And it could be the first place to build an actual Hyperloop for commercial use, says CEO Rob Lloyd. “It’s got the infrastructure, regulatory movement and kind of capital in place needed to build it already,” he told TechCrunch.

According to Stepfeed, Dubai may actually become the first place in the world where Elon Musk’s crazy Hyperloop idea is built on a large scale and put to commercial use. “It’s got the infrastructure, regulatory movement and kind of capital in place needed to build it already,” Rob Lloyd, CEO of Hyperloop One, a startup developing Musk’s open-source technology, told Tech Crunch.

Therefore, the Hyperloop high-speed transportation system could make its commercial route in Dubai via Jebel Ali Port. Engadget writes that company CEO and ex-Cisco president Rob Lloyd told TechCrunch that the wealthy city certainly has “the infrastructure, regulatory movement and kind of capital in place needed” to make it happen.

The transportation time will be reduced from Dubai to Abu Dhabi, the Hyperloop will consume your 12 minutes to take you from one emirate to another. The Hyperloop One, the Los Angeles based company, has the plan for the world’s first Hyperloop system in operation. Once it’s introduced in the UAE, passengers will travel between Abu Dhabi and Dubai at 1200 KMH speed in special pods. Wow! it’s much faster than a Boeing 747 aircraft which has 825 KMH the maximum speed. Hence, the system may revolutionize the future transportation.

How will the Hyperloop work?

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,” according to the What’s On.
