One such train, for example, could connect Amsterdam in Netherlands to Paris in France, in as little as 90 minutes. This journey usually takes over 5 hours by car or 3 hours by train, so it would be a vast improvement.
“Hyperloop for passengers can become a reality as early as 2028,” a Hardt Hyperloop representative told Lonely Planet in an interview last month. “What makes it so unique is its high capacity, low energy use and high speeds that indeed shorten travel times substantially. A trip between Amsterdam and Paris, for example, will only be 90 minutes, while it will be just like catching a train.”
The Hyperloop would bring countless other benefits, besides the obvious one of saving precious time. Traveling at speeds of 1,000 mph (621 mph), it would be noise-free and emissions-free, would help reduce congestion and pollution in the city. By setting up a network of hubs, it would promote accessibility and connectivity.
Moreover, these trains would be spacious, modern, highly comfortable and, just as importantly, not crowded because several would leave for the same destination within minutes of each other.
Each train would feature a skylight mimicking outside light and weather conditions (because it would travel under ground), creating the impression of more space. They would also include various options for keeping passengers in the loop about the status of their trip, thus maintaining a sense of control at all times.
