Mumbai-Pune Hyperloop snippets

In the next six months, the blueprint of a futuristic transportation system known as ‘Hyperloop’ between Mumbai and Pune will be ready in the form of a detailed project report only after which its accurate travel fare and daily ridership will be ascertained, however, the test run for hyperloop will start only after the project construction is awarded to any one particular company, said Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority officials who are handling the project.

The PMRDA is working with Virgin Hyperloop One that has prepared a pre-feasibility report for hyperloop connectivity between Mumbai and Pune. Hyperloop is said to be a futuristic mode of mass transit system wherein a tube-like pod is expected to allow one travel between Mumbai and Pune in 25 minutes. The route of hyperloop is proposed to start from Pune via Expressway, and will come all the way till BKC via proposed Navi Mumbai Airport near Panvel where government plans it to connect with Colaba-Seepz Metro-3 underground corridor and the DN Nagar- Mankhurd Metro-2B corridor, and also the bullet train terminal, if possible.
