The company has just signed the deal with RTA and is intensely researching on the existing system of the place. Therefore Hyperloop One has not disclosed any terms of the deal with Dubai and its technology as it is still in the testing phase. The company’s initial plan is to study the possibility of building a line that connects it to Abu Dhabi’s Emirati Capital.
