Culver City-based company Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HyperloopTT) says the super-fast system could also be used to carry cargo from the country's ports and harbours.

The company has ambitions to develop it into a larger network connecting all cities in the Middle East.

'This agreement creates the basis for the first commercial Hyperloop system in the world here in the Emirates, with the goal of eventually connecting Abu Dhabi to Al Ain, Dubai, and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia,' said Bibop Gresta, Chairman of HyperloopTT.

'With regulatory support, we hope the first section will be operational in time for Expo 2020.'
