Monorail can save a lot of money, rise above the traffic and not impact the environmental.    Standard speed is 50 mph.   Newer Maglev technology Monorail can run up to 310 mph as seen in China since 2004.   

Note - Higher Speed Monorail (possibly Maglev) employed where the Thicker Lines are noted. 
Restricted speeds at 80 to 120 mph for safety inside the higher populated area.

( see Detail Tab for Maglev information).
