SwissRapide Maglev Rail Systems… 

…The Train that Flies!


SwissRapide AG is worldwide pioneer and competence centre for the planning, construction and operation of ultra-fast, high-performance and highly reliable Maglev (magnetic levitation) rail systems and projects around the globe. Our solutions meet the global need for environmentally sustainable, intelligent transportation systems that solve today's growing traffic congestion problems and address mobility needs for generations to come.


SwissRapide Maglev rail systems are based on the proven Transrapid Maglev technology, the most advanced innovation in railway technology in the last 50 years. The system hovers in the air instead of rolling, thanks to magnetic levitation, thus the vehicles have no physical contact with the guideway. This enables the system to be highly energy efficient, allows operating speeds of easily up to 500 km/h and significantly reduces the total cost of system ownership.


The SwissRapide Maglev rail system has the following advantages over conventional high-speed railway systems:


Ultra-speed: 2 - 3 times faster point-to-point connections


Energy efficient: 25% less energy consumption per seat & km at 300 km/h


Environmentally friendly: 50 % less noise emissions at 300 km/h


Cost efficient: 5 times lower maintenance and operating costs


Smart urban planning: Elevated guideway requires 6 times less land


Punctual: Fully automated, highly reliable system
