Las Vegas Monorail Finally Ready To Open

After several delays, the four-mile, $654 million Las Vegas monorail is set to open to the public on July 15th.

Most of the problems in developing the Las Vegas Monorail have involved "computer software that controls the driverless trains along the 4.4-mile route between Sahara and Tropicana avenues, just east of Las Vegas Boulevard South." The system is expected to carry approximately 50,000 passengers daily. Future phases seek to expand the monorail to downtown to the North, the west side of the strip, and eventually the University and the airport.

Also available are an animated route map and a Quicktime video. (Thanks to Slashdot for these links.)
