When one talks about Bengaluru, three things immediately come to mind: pleasant weather, software companies and…the traffic! A drive from the Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) to the city centre can easily take travellers up to 2 hours. But what if we told you this long drive could soon be a thing of the past?
Soon, travellers can reach the city centre from the KIA in just 10 minutes, thanks to the plan to build a ‘Hyperloop’ corridor.

The Hyperloop has the capacity to transport thousands of passengers per hour from the city to the airport in just ten minutes with a speed of 1080 km per hour.
The pods of Hyperloop travel at high speeds through low-pressure tubes through either underground tunnels or on erected columns, therefore leaving little scope for driver-related mistakes.
For this, the Bengaluru International Airport Limited (BIAL) has signed a first-of-its-kind Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Virgin Hyperloop Company to study the feasibility of the project:
We are thrilled to announce a trailblazing #partnership with @virginhyperloop which will delve into the feasibility of a mode of mass transit to enable #travel from #BLRairport to the city centre in 10 minutes. Know more: https://t.co/YoP0qKnGGP #WeAreHereForYou pic.twitter.com/WYCl73Ua5V

The study will focus on the technical, economic and route feasibility of the Hyperloop corridor and is expected to be completed in two phases of six months each.
The Hyperloop will be the key in connecting passengers at unparalleled speeds with zero emissions, while also boosting the cargo delivery system.
BIAL also said that it will be constructing centrally-located hyperloop portals so that passengers can undergo seamless check-in and security checks for both their flight and hyperloop travel in one place.
This futuristic travel experience is sure to make Bengaluru a transport hub soon!
