How long will it take to travel the GCC by Hyperloop? – Graphic

How long it will take for the Hyperloop system to transport people and goods across the GCC and UAE.

The concept, in which a magnetically levitated pod is propelled through a near-vacuum tube at speeds of up to 1,200 kilometres an hour, has yet to be fully tested, and many scientists have suggested it faces engineering and financial challenges that may make it impracticable.

But should Hyperloop One's prototype in Nevada prove successful, the company is looking to bring the technology to Dubai by 2021, with regulatory approval coming next year.
