Title: Pressure Trains
Timeline: 10 years
A train that uses compressed air as its source of power instead of fuel. Most modes of transportation such as cars, trains, and planes are responsible for most of the emissions polluting our air. A train contained in a tube of controlled air wouldn’t be restricted by friction and could approach speeds up to 600 mph. This would make transportation more efficient, safe, and environmentally friendly. The cost for a project like this would be 50-60 million per Km.
