  • Trains, a two-hundred year old form of mass transportation, have continued to chug along into modern times.
  • Trains are one of the most effective means of traveling from one place to another, assuming the train runs on the route you need to go, and they also happen to be one of the greenest forms of travel out there.
  • Maglev trains are also fully electric, meaning that if the electricity used to power them comes from renewable sources like solar or wind, the maglev trains would have a very low carbon footprint, all while being one of the most efficient forms of long-distance travel.
