Think of all of the things you could be doing with the time spent sitting in traffic. The Northeast Corridor is home to some of the world’s worst traffic. The average commuter in Washington, DC spends 102 hours per year in traffic congestion. That’s more than 4 days of the year sitting in traffic.
What if you could have those 4 days back?
On Time, Reliably
When compared with other modes of regional transportation, SCMAGLEV stands alone in terms of speed and reliability. Efficiently and safely traveling at over 300 miles per hour, the SCMAGLEV puts most major cities and transportation hubs of the Northeast Corridor within one hour of each other.
Central Japan Railway’s (JRC) Tokaido Shinkansen can proudly refer to a record of extreme punctuality. Including delays due to uncontrollable circumstances, JRC had an average delay of 54 seconds per operational train in 2013. Built upon JRC’s systems and culture of reliability and safety, the SCMAGLEV aims to provide the model by which all regional transportation is measured.
