TransPod is developing the next generation of affordable and sustainable ultra high-speed transportation for a better connected and fossil fuel-free society.

TransPod is building solutions to solve mankind’s biggest upcoming challenge. The way people move is not sustainable. As the population is demanding faster deliveries and faster transport, it is critical to develop new transportation systems capable of moving people fast and clean.

In a hyperloop system, pressurized passenger and cargo vehicles travel in a low-pressure tube environment, driven by linear induction motors and air compressors, at speeds exceeding 1000 km/h. TransPod’s cutting-edge new design enables a significant reduction in the investment capital, increase in reliability, and improved operational performance, allowing a stronger business case for this system.

TransPod’s vehicle and infrastructure are being designed together for optimal performance, using TransPod’s IP. Powered by environmentally-sustainable solar/electric energy in a system that is unaffected by weather conditions, TransPod’s system enables passenger and cargo travel that is faster than airline travel, creating an attractive choice for consumers, a high-potential investment opportunity for infrastructure investors, and a reliable mass transportation system.
