dc.description.abstractA maglev rail network connecting the Texas Triangle has the ability to unite this emerging mega-region with a highly efficient alternative to auto and air transport. This would serve to increase the economic sharing of resources and will improve the quality of life for residents with enhanced accessibility to jobs and services in all triangle cities. Many unforeseen benefits materialize from such a highly connected regional transportation infrastructure including cost reductions in highway maintenance and construction and reduced air traffic in congested skies and airports. This study examines the reasons for choosing a maglev system, regulatory barriers to implementing such a system, and the costs associated with a Maglev system built in the Texas Triangle.en
