The Virgin Group has signed an intent agreement with the Indian state of Maharashtra to build a hyperloop transportation system between the cities of Pune and Mumbai, reducing travel time from 3 hours to 20 minutes. The hyperloop route will link central Pune, the Navi Mumbai international airport, and Mumbai, and estimates indicate that the system will transport 150 million passengers every year. Although project cost and a timeline have not yet been released, the project will begin after a 6-month feasibility study to analyse and define the route alignment, environmental impact, framework, costs, and economic and commercial viability. The hyperloop will be a fully electric system with the capability of travelling up to 1,000km per hour.
