Gautrain vs Hyperloop – How long does it take to travel from Pretoria to Johannesburg



The report published by Knight Frank discusses possible transport options to help connect satellite cities and cities to more established cities.

While motorways and railroads will remain in the near future, Virgin's Hyperloop One might be worth it.

Initially, Hyperloop was designed to help travelers travel between San Francisco and Los Angeles in half an hour.

A train-like service would be a "junction between Concorde, a railroad bar and an air hockey table" and can drive at a speed of 1000 km / h.

According to Knight Frank, Hyperloop could make traveling between cities much quicker while taking pressure on the roads.
