Monorails of North America


Las Vegas Monorail, Nevada

 Opened 2004

 6.3 km

7 stations 

30,000 / day 

It was short and it only had two stations, yet when it opened in 1995, it carried more passengers than some light rail systems that are fifteen times longer with far more stations. This privately built and operated monorail has been lengthened along the famous Las Vegas Strip. The line runs from the Sahara Resort to the MGM Resort. Further extensions are under study. See our Special Feature segment on the Las Vegas Monorail for details and images.
