Partnered with Los Angeles-based Hyperloop One, Dubai is examining now how much a Hyperloop network would cost.
According to the company, the 67 miles from Dubai to Fujairah, could be traveled in just 10 minutes.
CEO of Dubai Future Foundation, Saif al-Aleeli, said:
“Imagine that you can live in Riyadh, work in Dubai, have your dinner in Abu Dhabi and watch a movie in Qatar.
Dubai is trying, as a mission, to prove that concept.”
