  • Abstract:
    The overall objective of the urban maglev transit technology development program is to develop magnetic levitation technology that is a cost effective, reliable, and environmentally sound transit option for urban mass transportation in the United States. This project will include the design of an urban maglev system and the development and demonstration of advanced hardware subsystems to verify advanced technology aspects of proposed system concepts. The system design may be derived from integrating existing subsystem technologies (to create a new system) or by improving an existing system using advanced technologies. The Colorado Maglev Project represents the prototype system design for a full-scale maglev system in the U. S. As part of its findings the Colorado Maglev Project has determined that with minor modifications an existing system, CHSST, based on linear induction motors (LIMs), can feasibly be deployed in the Colorado I-70 corridor. The project reports fully evaluate and present the modified CHSST technology’s capability to accommodate the terrain and service levels of the I-70 corridor. The full report is presented in three parts. Part I is the Executive Summary. Part II is this Final Report. Part III is provided in CD format only upon request to the FTA, and provides additional technical detail and support to the Part I and Part II reports.
