    I’d have loved this if I were of that generation!

    I’ve ridden on the monorails of Expo ’67 (all three, and later worked for one of the companies that made them), Seattle, Disney, Pearson Airport, and several others. I hope to add the Memphis one soon.

    @ Toronto – I love monorails, wish they’ed add some to the TTC.

    @Hirudina – A monorail would solve a lot of problems with the SRT replacement – in theory you could build it over the roads and Mayor “I never ride Transit but want to run it” Ford would have one less thing to complain about.

    @ Toronot – Exactly, but it makes too much sense so it will never happen.
