    Re: Is the Monorail along Harbor on Disney propery or city property?

    I think so too^ Its so hard to know because a million factors play into it. Monorails are more custom, but you only need one beam with side rails while elevated rail is more stock but also requires more infrastructure above ground.

    Right, but I was just wondering the cost of the beam and the support alone (basically the cost before trains and right of way.

    Ditto. Besides, that would probably require ticket takers in the parking structure station to make sure guests already bought their ticket or have their APs to ride the monorail. And more confusion for guests who don't understand the monorail system.
