World’s first Hyperloop train route will be built between Toronto and Montreal, Canada.
Los Angeles based Hyperloop One has chosen two largest Canadian metropolitan areas for world’s first commercial service.
When built, Hyperloop service will be world’s fastest overground service, with hyperloop pods whisking passengers from Montreal via Ottawa to Toronto faster than passenger planes.
If the system is built, commuters would be able to travel from:
• Toronto to Montreal (640 km) in 39 minutes
• Toronto to Ottawa (450 km) in 27 minutes
• Ottawa to Montreal (190 km) in 12 minutes
However, don’t expect ticket prices to be anywhere near affordable, building infrastructure which includes 650km of tunnels and guided rails won’t come cheap, estimated range between 7 and 25 billion US$.
However, if you can afford world’s first hyperloop service, in less than an hour you could be fine dining in Montreal, after long day at work in Toronto, 640km away.
Other cities are also looking at setting up hyperloop service. United Arab Emirates plans to build Hyperloop connection between Abu Dhabi and Dubai, two largest centres of population in Emirates. The 150km, 12min link between the two cities could be built as early as 2022.
Elon Musk is also looking at building hyperloop, however at this point his Boring Company is continuing the research in to the technology and how best to implement the concepts.
However, average person won’t be able to afford to use Hyperloop at least in short to medium term, until technology matures and we see widespread use across the globe. With costs raging between $20 and 50 million per kilometre it is not cheap transport solution as most are lead to believe. However long it term is more affordable and more practical than current high speed train service which often costs even more to implement.
