A maglev, or magnetically levitating, train is a form of transportation that suspends, guides and propels vehicles (predominantly trains) using electromagnetic force. This method has the potential to be fast and quiet when compared to wheeled mass transit systems, potentially reaching velocities comparable to turboprop and jet aircraft (900 km/h, 600 mph). The highest recorded speed of a maglev train is 930 km/h (578 mph), achieved in Japan in 2003, much faster than the conventional TGV speed record.

MagLev Trains in Withmore City provide quick access from one sector of the city to another.
