Hyperloop One is offering 9 potential routes in Europe for more efficient, greener and on-demand transportation. The company unveiled its plans in a conference in Amsterdam yesterday.
According to the company press release, these nine potential European routes will connect over 75 million people in 44 cities, spanning 5000 kilometers and connecting the entire continent.
The proposed routes would greatly reduce passanger and cargo transport times across some of the continent´s most heavily trafficked regions. The routes include: Germany, Estonia-Finland, Spain-Morocco, Corsica-Sardinia, the Netherlands, Poland, UK Scotland-Wales, UK Northern Arc and UK North-South Connector.
With Hyperloop One, passangers and cargo are loaded into a pod and accelerated gradually via electric propulsion through a low-pressure tube. With this magnetic levitation the pod glides at airline speed for long distances, curbing emissions and fuel consumption at the same time.
