The feasibility of Swissmetro, VacTrain® and SwissMetro-NG was confirmed many times over:
Rodolphe Nieth, Report on the Prospects of an integrated Metro across the whole of Switzerland (1980)
Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology – ETH, Swissmetro Final Report (1999)

SwissMetro-NG Project:
The Swissmetro-NG project aims to connect the Swiss urban Centres with a system which reflects our modern time and age. It is based on the technology developed by the ETH (1974-2009), and by the Swiss Transportation Research Institute (since 2010). It is being promoted by the non-profit SwissMetro-NG association:
