Indy Green Party for Northeast Maglev Train
We need "More Trains, Less Traffic"!
Northeast Maglev is a winner for
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.
AN ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY HIGH-SPEED SOLUTION
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
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.
