there's a monorail system that's been around for well over a decade. this light rail project sounds like a separate commuter project rather than the disney style tourist monorail.I thought they built that? It runs behind the resorts on both sides of the strip right? I have been on it once.
looking on the intertrons i see they've shot down light rail but are potentially looking into bus rapid transit. which is basically the same thing but runs on plain concrete using diesel rather than on rails and electric. costs about 1/2 the construction cost. i guess rails and overhead line are expensive.
