Time: 7:00pm
Date: Thursday, September 13

Who We are

What Can You Do

A grassroots group of citizens against this proposed Super Conducting Magnetic Levitation (SCMaglev) train project between Baltimore, Maryland and Washington, DC


The project has cleared the scoping hurdle and an Environmental Impact Study is currently underway. Baltimore Washington Rapid Rail (BWRR) has stated that construction could start as early as 2019 if the study proceeds as scheduled.  NOW is the time to make your voice heard so that we can stop this project before it gets any further.  Join Us. Get Involved.

Why  SCMaglev is a Concern

Questions remain unanswered. Despite the claims being made of the SCMaglev between Baltimore, Maryland and Washington, DC, there may never be economic or jobs benefit  for the local communities, counties or the state of Maryland. There are few, if any, direct economic benefits to those who live along the proposed routes.  There are no improvements to commuter traffic congestion (automobile or rail).  There will be disruptions and potential dislocations of properties in established communities.  There is the possibility of distrubing and irreparably harming historic sites, recreational areas, and open spaces.  There is also the possible adverse environmental impact. ​​
