FluxJet super train – Canadian analogue of Hyperloop can get closer to supersonic


Innovative Flux Jet startup from Canada's TransPod may change passenger and freight travel.

Canadian startup TransPod, which builds the world's leading ultra-high-speed ground transportation system TransPod Line, recently unveiled Project Flux Jet, a trend-setting innovation that will change the way passengers and cargo move and speed. Based on innovations in propulsion and clean energy systems that do not use fossil fuels, all-electric transport is a hybrid of an airplane and a train. It features technological advances in contactless power transmission and research in a new field of physics called veillance flux, which allows it to travel in a vacuum through a special tunnel at speeds of over 1,000 km/h — faster than a passenger jet and three times faster than a high-speed train.

“This project — a serious step forward, — says Ryan Janzen, co-founder and CTO of TransPod. “Flux Jet is at the intersection of cutting-edge scientific research, industrial development and large-scale transportation infrastructure to best meet the needs of passengers and reduce our dependence on fossil-fueled aircraft and highways.”

Preliminary work on the FluxJet project, including an environmental impact assessment, is already under way. The super-fast vehicle will operate on a dedicated TransPod line, a system with stations at key locations and major cities with high-frequency departures, to ensure fast, affordable and safe travel.

According to startup executives, this project will create up to 140,000 jobs and add $19.2 billion to the state's GDP during construction. In addition, when the TransPod line is operational, the cost of a ticket will cost passengers about 44% less than a plane ticket and help reduce CO2 emissions by 636,000 tons per year.

«FluxJet — this is one of the major transportation innovation projects in Canada and the largest infrastructure project to be implemented worldwide,” — says Ryan Janzen. The TransPod line is being developed in collaboration with partners in Europe, the US and beyond, including universities, research centers, aerospace, architecture, rail and construction partners.
