What is Hyperloop India?

Hyperloop India is a non-profit initiative with the vision and motivation similar to that of Lee Kuan Yew, the father of modern Singapore, who had foreseen Singapore’s future when he introduced possibly the world’s best public transport system, simply to make sure millions of hours of manpower a year were not lost waiting in traffic.
Starting off earlier this year with a small group of students from BITS Pilani, we have expanded by bringing together people, organizations and stakeholders from all over India who have powerful ideas and are interested in reinventing transportation in the country to move cargo and passengers immediately, safely, efficiently, and sustainably. Reaching out to government institutions and PSUs (Ministries of Railways, Road & Transport, Energy) has helped us shape and collaborate towards a common goal of bringing the Hyperloop to India.  We are grateful to have leading experts and academicians in transport, technology, economics, and innovators on board from many of these institutes. Our partners and advisors  include many pioneers in the data and logistics sector viz. SocialCops, Locus.sh, Vamaship and Government enterprises like RITES, Make in India team and NITI Aayog. The team draws majorly from educational institutes and we are mentored and research-led by faculties from BITS Pilani and Indian School of Business.

We are the only team of this scale representing India in putting forward a comprehensive commercial, transport, economic, and policy case for the country to host the Hyperloop.
