Virgin Hyperloop and the Bangalore International Airport Limited on Sunday signed a first of its kind MoU (Memorandum of Understanding), to test the feasibility of a hyperloop corridor from Kempegowda International Airport to Bengaluru city.
The proposed corridor could reduce the travel time between the airport and city centre to 10 minutes. The pre-feasibility study would take about 2 phases of six months each to complete.
Hyperloop envisages pods or capsules travelling at high speeds through low-pressure tubes erected on columns or tunneled underground. The system is fully autonomous and sealed, leaving little scope for any driver-related error.
