Dubai plans Hyperloop trains that will be faster than planes

A Dubai Metro train runs past Sheikh Zayed road in Dubai September 13, 2010. State-owned conglomerate Dubai World reached a formal deal to restructure almost $25 billion of liabilities, partly easing recently heightened concerns over the Gulf emirate's debt woes. Dubai World reached an agreement with over 99 percent of its creditors by value to restructure around $24.9 billion of liabilities, the Dubai government said.
