Monorail systems provide an elegant solution to elevated medium capacity urban transport at a competitive price.

Monorail systems provide an elegant solution to elevated medium capacity urban transport at a competitive price.

Within the urban landscape, monorails provide a medium-capacity transport system with a less intrusive infrastructure than an equivalent rail-based system.

Benefits of monorail include low-cost infrastructure, an elevated and dedicated "right of way," light to medium capacity, and simple station construction. Monorails operate quietly and with low vibration and low impact. Control systems are relatively simple, and construction can be rapid in urban areas.
