A new form of transport currently being developed by a number of companies, hyperloop envisages passengers traveling at high speeds in floating pods located inside giant low-pressure tubes, either above or below ground.

As part of the first leg in India, Virgin Hyperloop plans to connect Pune and Mumbai, covering the 150-km distance at 1,200 kmph speeds in about 35 minutes, a tenth of the time taken by road currently.
