Slovakia’s Hyperloop Moves a Step Closer to Not Being a Joke

On Wednesday, Hyperloop Transportation Technologies signed an “exploratory agreement” with the Czech city of Brno, which wants to examine the feasibility of a hyperloop line to Bratislava, Slovakia, where HTT also is working with the government. Being fired through a tube will cut the 80-mile trip, which takes 90 minutes by rail, to 10 minutes.

“The world is ready to embrace the hyperloop,” says CEO Dirk Ahlborn.
