Hyperloop will significantly reduce travel times between Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Riyadh and Muscat, and the technology may be available for the public in the next five years, CEO of Hyperloop One told Newsweek Middle East.

By Arfa Shahid/Abdullah Ahmed

DUBAI – Nov 8 – Dubai is set to significantly reduce traffic congestion in the emirate via Hyperloop One technology.

The country’s Road and Transport Authority (RTA) has signed a “historic agreement” with Hyperloop One, a mobility company, and the two parties have agreed to jointly explore routes for a transport system between Dubai and Abu Dhabi, as well as between Dubai, Oman and Riyadh.

The hyperloop is designed to be a low-pressure tube through which levitating pods can travel at up to 1,200 km/h. Benefits include higher standards of safety than a passenger jet, lower build and maintenance costs than high-speed rail, and energy usage, per person, that is similar to a bicycle.

Hyperloop One CEO Rob Lloyd told Newsweek Middle East that the company “can assure that Hyperloop is safe for travel for people with health concerns” and that “the health and safety regulators team will clarify any health-related concerns” for commuters.

Speaking at the signing ceremony at Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, Director General & Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of the RTA Mater Al Tayer said: “We’ll bring daylight mobility savings..Dubai is a city that understands global changes.”

Under the terms of Tuesday’s agreement, Hyperloop One will work with architects and engineers on a detailed feasibility study sponsored by the RTA, which will move the company into its second stage of progress in the UAE.

Al Tayer said that the project “is an opportunity to help transform the UAE from a technology consumer to a technology creator, incubating expertise for a new global industry.”

Hyperloop will reduce journey times for people and goods between the Dubai and Abu Dhabi to just 12 minutes, as opposed to the current 1 hour 30 minutes average by car.

Lloyd said “it is up to the RTA to decide” when Hyperloop will be available for the public to use, and added that the UAE could see a Hyperloop “within the next five years.”
