Introduction. At the present stage of developing methodological approaches to assess-
ment of social and economic efficiency, all the external effects of the project are divided into
effects that can be estimated in value terms, and effects that cannot be expressed in monetary
units. In turn, the latter are divided into effects that have a quantitative expression and effects,
described only on a qualitative level. External effects, which can be estimated in monetary
terms, are directly included in the calculation of the social and economic efficiency of the pro-
ject in the form of additional inflows and outflows of money.
Problem. The conceptual basis for assessing the social and economic efficiency of new
high-speed lines is the comprehensive consideration of all external effects from the imple-
mentation of the investment project (economic and non-economic) that do not affect the cost
parameters of the project participants.
Objective. The aim of the work is to develop a system of indicators for assessing the
social and economic efficiency of the strategy of the development of high-speed urban
Methods. Study of existing methods of assessing social and economic efficiency,
searching for disadvantages and advantages, exploring the advantages of magnetic levitation
Results. The development of this system of indicators for magnetic levitation transport,
which is distinguished by such advantages as the impossibility of derailment, greater route
speed, hence less time travel, less noise and vibration than light-rail transport and metro,
complete absence of dust, is especially important.
Conclusion. The proposed system of indicators for assessing the social and economic
efficiency of the strategy of the development of high-speed urban transport takes into account
all the advantages of magnetic levitation technology and makes it a priority when choosing
high-speed urban transport.
