The Slovak government is no longer cooperating with the American company Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT), which was interested in building Hyperloop - a new transportation system promising speeds up to 1,200 km/h in Slovakia. This was confirmed by the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister of the Slovak Republic for Investments and Informatics, which is headed by Richard Raši.
On Wednesday, Hyperloop Transportation Technologies signed an "exploratory agreement" with the Czech city of Brno, which wants to examine the feasibility of a hyperloop line to Bratislava, Slovakia, where HTT also is working with the government. Being fired through a tube will cut the 80-mile trip, which takes 90 minutes by rail, to 10 minutes.
Hyperloop Transportation Technologies announced Thursday that it has signed an agreement with the government of the Slovak Republic to "explore" building a hyperloop system that connects Bratislava with Vienna, Austria and Budapest, Hungary.
