Northeast Corridor

Traffic congestion, construction, lengthy commutes, poor road conditions, noise and air pollution—these are things the average traveler in the Northeast Corridor deals with on a daily basis. It’s the nation’s most congested region and it’s riding on an aging infrastructure. That makes it ideal for the SCMAGLEV.

NY to DC Train

Proposed Destinations

The Northeast MAGLEV will provide the fastest train connections to the region’s major cities and airports

A world of new possibilities will open to people living in the Northeast Corridor when an SCMAGLEV train can take them from Washington to New York in less than an hour. Passengers can catch a Broadway show and be back in D.C. later that evening. Businesspeople can attend meetings in different cities without staying overnight. Air travelers can choose from numerous airports, as opposed to the one that is closest.

SCMAGLEV will revolutionize travel and convenience for commuters moving between Washington, D.C. and New York City, through Baltimore, Wilmington and Philadelphia, as well as the Baltimore-Washington, Philadelphia and Newark International Airports.

What would you do with an extra 100 minutes? That’s how much time you’d save each way if you took the SCMAGLEV instead of the Acela from D.C. to New York City.

Benefits to the Region

Communities along the route will benefit greatly

Imagine traveling on a high-speed train from home to work and from city to city in a fraction of the time it takes today. Now multiply that by millions of people. As distances shrink from hours to minutes, people, cities and surrounding areas will benefit from new opportunities and improved quality of life.

Job Creation

The Northeast SCMAGLEV will help create tens of thousands of new jobs

It’s a fact that one of the best ways to create jobs is to invest in infrastructure. Investment in SCMAGLEV will directly create tens of thousands of high-paying construction and engineering jobs and spur many more along the Northeast Corridor.

What’s more, the increased mobility of people and services will mean greater job opportunities as businesses, workers and customers are brought closer together. With this advanced transportation technology, distance ceases to be a barrier to opportunities that are currently out of reach.

Commerce Opportunities

SCMAGLEV will bolster regional commerce and economic activity in the Northeast Corridor

Delays do more than frustrate commuters: they stifle productivity, efficiency and commerce. By some estimates, these delays cost the Northeast more than $14 billion every year. That’s no small thing, especially since this region represents 20 percent of our national economy (GDP).
Soon, however, cities in the Northeast will be more interconnected than ever before. People will be able to reach new markets and customers more quickly and easily. Suddenly, a branch office or store, a sporting event or favorite weekend location, will be much closer.

Reduced Congestion

SCMAGLEV will help reduce traffic congestion in the Northeast corridor

How much time do you spend in traffic? You might be surprised if you added it up. In Washington, D.C. for example, people spend an average of 67 hours – nearly three days – per year stuck in traffic. We think that time is better spent with family and friends.

We need the SCMAGLEV to help ease the frustration of rush hour traffic, construction detours, airport delays and countless other travel headaches.
