Maharashtra announces to built its first Hyperloop route in India between Mumbai to Pune.
Virgin Hyperloop One Chairman and founder Sir Richard Branson announced the Framework Agreement in the presence of Hon'ble Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister of Maharashtra Devendra Fadnavis to begin the development of the route.
Richard Branson Said, "Virgin Hyperloop One can help India become a global transportation pioneer and forge a new world-changing industry."
"I believe Virgin Hyperloop One could have the same impact upon India in the 21st century as trains did in the 20th century. The Pune-Mumbai route is an ideal first corridor as part of a national hyperloop network that could dramatically reduce travel times between India's major cities to as little as two hours," he added.
The Hyperloop route will connect Mumbai and Pune, link central Pune, Navi Mumbai International Airport, and Mumbai in 25-minutes connecting 26 million people and creating a thriving, competitive megaregion.
