Infographic: The Many Monorails of the United States

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

At one point in time in American history, monorails were envisioned by many as the future of public transportation. When Walt Disney introduced the monorail to American audiences at Disneyland back in 1959, the general public was excited by the prospect of monorails popping up across the country.

Today, monorails are not nearly as widespread as people originally thought they would be. Although America added several monorails to its infrastructure during the 1960s and 1970s, few of those monorails remain standing today, and those that do remain in operation are generally limited to theme parks, zoos, and airports.

Still, the United States is not completely devoid of these single-rail forms of public transportation. The infographic included below displays where the many remaining monorails of the United States are located.
