Hyperloop Transportation Technologies sign agreement with Brno, Czech Republic

Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT) has announced the signing of an agreement with the city of Brno, Czech Republic.

The agreement marks the beginning of an investigation into the feasibility of a Hyperloop system to connect Brno with Bratislava, Slovakia. HTT already has a development agreement with Bratislava, with the view to connect it to Prague, the capital of Czech Republic.

HTT’s agreement with the city of Brno is for the first Hyperloop that would operate between two international cities. As an international crossroads, Brno’s current main rail station runs at capacity.

HTT’s CEO Dirk Ahlborn commented on the need to collaborate with international governments now that certain technical issues have been resolved.

In a post on its Facebook page, HTT said: “In the past year HTT has made historic deals directly with the regulators and government officials of Slovakia and Abu Dhabi and expects a multitude of similar government agreements this year continuing to create the necessary regulatory framework for the Hyperloop™ system worldwide.”

HTT are one of three main companies who are currently developing Hyperloop systems based on the concept presented by Elon Musk in 2013. Transpod, and Hyperloop One, who recently announced designs for a 12-minute Dubai to Abu Dhabi route, are both developing similar Hyperloop solutions.
