MAGLEV CONCEPTUAL OPERATIONS PLAN

High Speed Ground Transportation (HSGT) is generally considered for intercity passenger service applications in 150 to 500 mile corridors as an alternative to aviation and highway modes. This paper examines the operational issues for airport access, commuter trunk, and intercity passenger services by presenting a conceptual operations plan. It is in large measure a summary of the work described in the Baltimore Washington Maglev Feasibility Study, June 1994. The following three revenue service operations are examined: Express service between downtown Baltimore and Washington, D.C. stations; Airport service between BWI Airport and Washington, D.C. stations; and Local service connecting Washington, BWI and Baltimore.
