Hyperloop One is taking over India's major transportation system problem with a promise to minimize travel time to major cities in just half an hour. The project will be building trains that could run 700mph and a railway system that expands all throughout the country despite infrastructure and location hurdles.

According to Telegraph UK, Hyperloop One will be connecting five major Indian cities by reducing the travel time into less than an hour and service the second biggest population on Earth. There are four blueprints carefully planned to eliminate factors that disturb the country's economic growth.

Hyperloop is expected to reduce the 884-mile journey between Delhi and Mumbai to 80 minutes; 831-mile journey between Mumbai and Chennai to an hour; 1,207-mile journey between Mumbai and Kolkata to an hour; and 424-mile journey to from Bengaluru to Thiruvananthapuram in just 40 minutes.

Hyperloop Train system runs as fast as the airplanes a major contrast to the current situation of Indian trains. This is obviously due to ingrained infrastructure problems and rapid population growth spread throughout the country.

However, the problem sounds a bit hard but the engineering power and technologically advantage of Elon Musk's Hyperloop One surely has the capacity to make the project works and put the Indian dream into reality.

According to Hyperloop Technologies CEO Rob Lloyd, the company will locally source out significant parts of the Hyperloop One, Bloomberg reported. The CEO also noted that India is a massive opportunity obviously for the concept of Hyperloop.

Elon Musk has originally planned the Hyperloop concept for San Francisco and Los Angeles to lessen the burden on California's airport system. Although it did not materialize in the US, the prototype testing is now nearing its desired result which is expected to be perfected right in time for it transfer its base to India.

While waiting for Hyperloop, India will use its "semi-high-speed service" prototype trains, an experiment transport system running a 140-mile journey between Delhi and Agra at 100mph.
