The future of transport is coming!
On Wednesday, Dubai Media Office tweeted that DP World and Virgin Hyperloop have hailed a decision by the US House of Representatives to pass legislation requesting a regulatory framework for the safe deployment of hyperloop systems. This means that the Hyperloop dream, (do you remember the futuristic train that could get you from Dubai to Abu Dhabi in just TWELVE minutes? Yup that one!) is one step closer to becoming a reality.
Hyperloop is a new form of land transport that is currently being developed by many companies
It could take you from one place to another quickly travelling at a possible speed of 1,100 KM PER HOUR!
The passengers will be inside giant pods which travels inside huge low-pressure tubes.
Hyperloops not only takes travellers from one place to another but also cargo and goods that need to be delivered.
I hope you know what that means?… Yup, your online shopping will reach you now only in HOURS rather than days. Handy.com!

Sultan Bin Sulayem, CEO of DP World and Chairman of Virgin Hyperloop commented, “We are excited to see this revolutionary vision becoming part of the future of transportation, as much as we are confident that Virgin Hyperloop will take a leap forward and deliver on 21st-century transportation solutions.”
