What is Monorail?

It is an efficient, cost-effective, environment friendly mass transit system that helps people to commute with relative comfort and ease. As the name suggests, “a monorail is a single rail serving as a track for passenger or freight vehicles”. In most cases, the vehicle straddles a guideway, though there are monorails that are suspended from the guideway. Simply put, it is a wide train on a single narrow beam stretched between pylons so that the train runs at an elevation, above road and conventional rail traffic, though monorails can run on guideways at ground level and in subway tunnels.
