Seattle's Monorail Proposal In Home Stretch

The City of Seattle is voting on November 7 for among many things, a monorail through part of the City.

There is less than one month left to go as Seattleites decide whether to make a billion dollar investment in futuristic transit proposal. A Seattlite's opinion:"We need some kind of mass transit system along the lines of a subway," he says. "The price of a subway is prohibitive. Monorail seems to be the closest thing that doesn't cost as much." In other words, truly rapid transit has to be built below ground or above. Tunneling is too expensive. That leaves monorail. "
