This Super-Fast Train Could Take You From Amsterdam To Paris In Just 90 Minutes

You could soon* travel between Paris and Amsterdam in just 90 minutes.

According to a report by Dutch company Hardt Hyperloop, their futuristic train systems could cut journey times between these two major European cities by more than half.

The firm plans to connect Amsterdam with Paris, Frankfurt and Düsseldorf using brand new ‘Hyperloop’ technology. The super-fast system would consist of a bunch of tubes that trains will shoot through at high speeds. They claim that this would result in journey times of closer to 90 minutes, as opposed to the three hours and 20 minutes that it currently takes to get to Paris. It would also take less than 30 minutes to travel to Düsseldorf from Amsterdam using the new service.

Hardt Hyperloop are all about maximising connectivity between Amsterdam and its commuter cities, inside the Netherlands and beyond. The use of an efficient train system would reduce road traffic and allow commuters to live in more affordable cities. For example, these speedy trains would get you from Eindhoven to the capital in just 15 minutes, compared to an hour and a half.

With zero CO2 emissions, these trains will also offer a far more sustainable alternative to short-haul flights. Hyperloop uses less energy per passenger than both regular trains and aeroplanes, and is completely powered by renewable electricity.

*Lower your expectations, folks. We can expect to wait a fairly long time for this new system to be rolled out, but 2028 is the current estimate. Long enough to find a job in Paris, eh?
