Aren't there simpler ways to speed things up?
I see that moving platforms might keep the journey time down for the average passenger, but I don't quite get how it's supposed to save energy or money. Accelerating and decelerating a bunch of platforms is going to be super energy intensive and costly. I would say the main short-term problem for any form of rail here in the US is the need to cross roads regularly.
