Hyperloop Transit Technologies (HTT) said it had reached an "exploratory agreement" with the Czech city of Brno on a super-fast rail connection with Bratislava, Slovakia. The bigger vision was to connect to the Czech capital of Prague, according to a statement by the company and local officials.
“Connecting Brno with Prague, and the existing efforts in Bratislava along with other cities in the region with the next generation of transportation will set the stage for a new era,” Brno mayor Petr Vokrall said.
HTT said that it was working with officials in Slovakia, Abu Dhabi and elsewhere in the hope of establishing uniform regulations for hyperloop systems.
“Since we have solved all the technical issues, it is now crucial for us to collaborate with governments around the world,” HTT CEO Dirk Ahlborn said. “New rules and frameworks will need to be written as we begin building out systems in Slovakia, the Emirates and several others to come.”
