Leave it to Richard Branson to make a sensational introduction.
Futuristic public transportation system Hyperloop has become talk of the town for a while, initiated by Elon Musk on 2013. If you happened to be in your own bat-cave for a while and haven’t heard the buzz, Hyperloop is the ultra-fast transportation system in which passengers are moved in a capsules, inside tunnels system (yes, fans of The Jetsons, you are allowed to scream now).
Richard Branson recently gained global attention as he tweeted about introducing Virgin Hyperloop One to Arab Saudi’s Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman Al Saud. The plan is to connect Riyadh and Jeddah and makes the ETA from 10-hour car drive to only 76 minutes. As the system is planned to operate in 2030, we can expect to see a more futuristic Arab in the future.
Hyperloop concept is said to be the perfect combination between train and plane. The system is being produced and tested right now. The future is totally happening, guys!
