15-minute train commute between Baltimore, D.C. a future possibility

A 15-minute commute from Baltimore to D.C. could be more than just a pipe dream.

The Baltimore Business Journal reports that the Japanese government is promising to lend the United States half the cost of building the country's very first "Super-Maglev", or magnetic levitation, train.

The project is estimated to carry a total cost of $8 billion, according to the Baltimore Business Journal article.

Japanese officials hope to have the train operational within the next 10 years.
