A new Hyperloop train system could soon take you from Paris to Amsterdam in just 90 minutes
According to the company's research, the new train could be a reality for many travelers as soon as 2028, Lonely Planet reported. The company has been focusing on five major routes that could potentially change how people commute and travel on a daily basis.
The company is focusing on both national and international routes. Not only will the new train connect Paris and Amsterdam, but it could also connect Amsterdam to Groningen and The Hague, according to Lonely Planet. On an international level, the train is planned to connect Amsterdam to Düsseldorf and Frankfurt, in addition to Paris. The train could connect Amsterdam to Eindhoven, which is normally 90 minutes away by car, in around 15 minutes. A commute to and from Amsterdam and Düsseldorf, over two and a half hours by car, could be less than half an hour.
The company believes this could drastically change how people see their home and work life — making it infinitely easier for people to go to work in Amsterdam but live in more affordable, nearby cities. The hyperloop train would depart from stations every few minutes, so getting from point A to point B may be as simple as people getting onto the New York City subway or London Underground.
Connecting international cities could also stand to impact air travel by offering a more energy-efficient way to get around continental Europe. With so many people opting to swear off air travel in an effort to be more eco-conscious, the train could be an excellent solution for people who still wish to travel longer distances. While this new innovation is still nearly a decade away, it certainly raises hopes for better travel experiences in the future.
