Post Maglev: Science experiment or the future of transport?

Ladies, Gents,

here is an international scientific survey about the future of transport: "Maglev: Science experiment or the future of transport?"

The focus of this academic, non-profit survey concerns the prospects and limitations of magnetic levitation (Maglev) transport technologies, including hyperloop projects, urban / cargo / high speed maglevs.

It is not a quick & easy survey. And it is anonymous.

The survey is oriented to the public interest, works independently and, as a basic tenet, does not represent any commercial interests. The THD, Technical University of Applied Sciences, CERM Institute, Germany, is conducting this survey for the International Maglev Board (IMB), a certified non-profit organization.

The survey is availiable in 4 languages:

English: https://survey.th-deg.de/index.php/673959?lang=en
Russian: https://survey.th-deg.de/index.php/673959?lang=ru
German: https://survey.th-deg.de/index.php/673959?lang=de
Chinese: https://survey.th-deg.de/index.php/673959?lang=zh-Hans

There are 22 questions in the survey that should take you less than 10 minutes to complete. The results will be published in September 2018 and will be made public / downloadable as pdf.

We would really appreciate if you would take some time for anonymously sharing your views on this topic with the research team.

Thank you for your time and interest

Best regards

Given that the Chinese decided not to go with the technology for their national HSR network, and in fact have left the Shanghai Maglev as an expensive white elephant of middling usefulness, I'd say that maglev is very unlikely to be the future of transport.
