Operates well in deserts - the elevated guideway is above shifting
sands and does not interrupt migration patterns.
Operates well in mountains - the linear motor does not rely on wheel
traction and can handle steep grades, rain, snow and ice.
Operates well in crowded corridors - the minimal footprint,
eight-lane equivalent capacity, and ability to handle tight curves
enables its use where other solution will not work.
There could be as many as 100 corridors worldwide where a high-speed
monorail could compete with highway and air travel. These include
corridors in the US (see below) and many international corridors like the
corridor connecting the GCC countries from Kuwait to Oman.
typically connect cities which are:
More than 150 miles apart. This makes high-speed trains competitive
with car travel
Less than 600 miles apart. This makes trains competitive with air
High-Speed Train Corridors in US
There are 26 corridors in the US which the National Maglev Initiative
identified as being potential routes for a high-speed train which can
travel at up to 300 MPH.
LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary
of Meneren Corporation was competitively selected
by the State of Colorado to design, construct, and
operate a 170 mile high-speed monorail system that will
connect DIA (Denver International Airport), stop in the
center of the City of Denver, and proceed up the Rocky
Mountain corridor to the ski areas (including Vail), and
on to the Eagle County Airport.
MagLift Technology has been designated a
"Maglev" technology by the US Department of
Transportation. However, unlike fully levitating
Maglev systems, MagLift is substantially lighter, lower
cost, and can stay within highway right-of-ways.
