A major advantage of the hyperloop tube concept is its potential for extremely efficient transportation on a large scale. Musk’s white paper suggests that the energy required per seat-mile of travel could be as low as 50 megajoules per journey between San Francisco and Los Angeles, far lower than other possible travel options.

The one major reason why it’s more efficient is that the tube is near vacuum which reduces the drag force considerably and at the same time they pod will be levitating so that makes it next to no friction at all thus letting us move at high speeds without using that much equivalent of work
