Vacuum shuttle is a transportation system in which the vehicle is run through evacuated or partly evacuated tubes .There is no need of an engine, here the vehicle is completely controlled externally by using valves. The lack of air resistance could permit to use little power and to move at extremely high speed. This technique may be used to transport passengers or goods. The vacuum inside the tube is produced by using an air compressor .Two rings are provided in between the vehicle and tube to prevent the leakage of air between the two sides .The vacuum tube train is less energy consuming, less time consuming and eco-friendly.
