Honestly at this point LETS JUST INVEST IN BUSSES

Can we get that?

The only problem with busses is that they work and white wealthy people realize that means people from poor places might be able to come to their neighborhood so it almost seems like these other technologies are convoluted ways of dodging the questions around WHY mass transit is underfunded (at least in the US).

This has none of the actually innovative features of the Hyperloop and is basically a fancy/expensive elevated light-rail with hypothetical and probably hugely problematic to manage individual carriages. Also anything involving Reliance Industries should come with a big warning sign these days.

Hyperloop

Innovative

Choose one… ;)

The hyperloop is the biggest scam in decades.

i know the words “biggest scam” are said about a lot of things, but imo hyperloop might actually be worthy of that title

the combination of absolutely enormous engineering challenges of making a vacuum tube tens and hundreds kilometers long, and other quite literally deadly challenges associated with it such as anything with regards to passenger safety in the event that “anything” goes wrong…

and investors are throwing hundreds of millions of dollars at this problem, which once again shows that venture capitalists are modern day bandits that also in most cases don’t know what they’re doing…

it’s a mutually enabled scam

Well that might be true, but the concept is still more innovative than what the OP posted.

also the fact that this shit was theorized in the 18th century, even the 700mph speeds and pneumatic railways were an actual real thing back then makes it not so innovative.
