The objective this study is, analyze, under the principles of sustainability, environmental issues associated with urban transport systems by magnetic levitation, specifically the MagLev-Cobra. Based on this analysis, it will propose an Environmental Management System (EMS) for managing previously identified indicators for the operational phase of the system, which will develop into a single indicator called Systemic Sustainability Indicator (SSI), which represent the condition system's environmental in time. This SSI was developed using the Fuzzy Theory that allows adding variables qualitative, quantitative, linear and nonlinear, with different universes of discourse, in the same model.
