Hyperloop One Shortlisted the Tallinn - Helsinki Route for Building a Super-Fast Transportation System07.06.2017
Hyperloop One has unveiled its shortlist of European routes being considered for its transport shake-up, after encouraging people to pitch in routes that would be deemed technically doable, as well as economically sound. Among the shortlisted routes is the 90 km trip from Estonia to Finland.
The proposed routes would, Hyperloop says, greatly reduce passenger and cargo times across some of the continent's "most heavily trafficked" regions. All the other routes proposed (for example Scotland - Wales or Madrid - Tangier) are considerably longer than the one between Tallinn and Helsinki.
The hyperloop is an experimental ground-based transportation system, where pods travel within tubes with low air pressure in speeds up to 1000km/h.
