Hyperloop is a new, better, and more efficient mode of transportation that is being proposed in this paper as an alternative to India’s railway and airport network with the benefit of better and more efficient performance at lower overall costs. This revolutionary hyperloop system consists of a capsule traveling through a tube (which is built underground) under a light vacuum (not exactly zero atmospheric pressure but close to zero) suspended on air bearings along the tube. The movement of the capsule is taken care of by a set of linear electromagnetic accelerators attached to the tube. The tube is held on concrete columns so that the tube is straight, and the capsule can follow a straight trajectory. The capsule can travel at transonic speeds (up to 1126 kmph), resulting in a 30-40-minute travel time between Chennai and Hyderabad (around 627 km) compared to an overnight train journey or a much more expensive 1-hour 15- minute flight.

Keywords: Air Bearings, Capsule, Electromagnetic Accelerators, Hyperloop, Transonic, Vacuum.
