São Paolo gets a monorail

Keith Barry, writing for Wired:

Currently, it can take nearly two hours to make the journey between Vila Prudente and Cidade Tiradentes by car. When the monorail is accepting passengers, that time should be cut to 50 minutes. Half a million passengers a day are expected to ride the new Silver Line.

Maybe the reason so many monorails failed was because they were built where there wasn’t a need for any mass transit.
