Las Vegas Monorail Woes

The Las Vegas monorail, which at one time used old Walt Disney World trains, has run into some financial troubles. That’s to be expected with the slowdown of tourism in the town. The bankruptcy will put a stop to the planned expansion of the line to the airport and other resorts.

The Las Vegas monorail is the only privately owned monorail system in the United States, other than Disney’s two of course. They do make enough money to operate the monorails in the black, but the debt load from construction is killing them. Of course, it costs $5 to ride one way. Makes you wonder what it costs Disney to run theirs.
