Indy Green Party supports Northeast Maglev

Indy Green Party for Northeast Maglev Train

We need "More Trains, Less Traffic"!  

Northeast Maglev is a winner for America.

The Northeast Maglev (TNEM) is a U.S.-owned company based in Washington, DC. We are committed to bringing the revolutionary Superconducting Maglev (SCMAGLEV) to the Northeast Corridor, the most congested transportation region in the country.

TNEM is working closely with the Central Japan Railway Company (JR Central), which has led development of the SCMAGLEV system since its formation in 1987. JR Central also operates the world’s premier high-speed rail line between Tokyo and Osaka, serving more than 140 million passengers a year. 



SCMAGLEV will reduce congestion on our roads and in the sky, resulting in less pollution. With no “rail noise” and reduced CO2 emissions, it is one of the greenest travel systems available.

Because SCMAGLEV trains levitate inches off of the ground, there is no noise or vibration generated by the familiar interaction between steel wheels and rails. There are no dirty diesel engines as trains are propelled by electricity from substations, and its lightweight, aerodynamic design further reduces energy consumption. In Japan, the CO2 emissions of the SCMAGLEV is estimated to be just one-third of a Boeing 777 airplane.

And you can feel good about your transportation choice knowing that the SCMAGLEV meets stringent environmental guidelines for magnetic fields recommended by the World Health Organization.
