RTA signs agreement with Hyperloop One to develop self-driving cars powered by Hyperloop technology.

As part of the Dubai Future Accelerators (DFA) programme, the company will also test feasibility of connecting Dubai with a number cities.

The latest development could reduce travel time between Dubai and Abu Dhabi to less than 12 minutes, and between Dubai and Riyadh to less than 48 min, reports ‘Gulf Today’.

Hyperloop stations will be set up across the city for commuters’ convenience.

If proven feasible, the emirate intends to implement the technology, which stands to reshape the transport and logistics sector around the world.
