ENERGY AND TIME SAVINGS ASSOCIATED WITH RAPID GROUND TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS

Guided ground transportation at high speeds can play an important economic and social role in the energy shortage. Such transport permits a more flexible use of various sources of available energy when a particular one happens to be in short supply. This should also increase the demand for electric propulsion since electricity is less sensitive to cost increase based on international oil supply. Research and development in high-speed guided ground transportation systems are needed to broaden the available energy base.
