Apart from Maharashtra and Karnataka this company is also ready to study the hyperloop probability in the state of Andhra Pradesh.

 

It would be working with partners in these Indian states and enable the navigation of regulatory equipments. The preliminary study intends to analyze the applicability and benefits of the hyperloop technology that identifies high priority routes in these states and also inform the state governments on the viability of the project.
