The general trade off is that the additional cost of the required infrastructure is offset by the increased weights and speeds that can be achieved by the resulting vehicles.
The presence of guide rails in the infrastructure makes the use of this technology relatively safe, especially in low-Gravity environments, or where the direction of travel for the vehicle is vertical (e.g. in a lift-shaft). This technology allows use of the sub-surface dimension for mass-transport on planets.
