To the team of Hyper loop. To begin with a prototype of the loop underrground say covering a distance of 20 to 30 kms in metro cities will ease the traffic congestion and will be best possible situation to address.
I have also travelled in the maglev train and have understood that beyond a certain limit of speed it is very difficult to access the speed barriers, as also is the finding in china. They had to restrict the speed to about 300 km per hour, a comparable reduction from the trial speeds. Covering a distance of about 33 km in about 8 to 10 minutes. There might be other possibilities of speeds being achieved greater than these. A thought that has come is put forth.
