The art of transit

photo by Mark Englert, via submission

Here’s a nice photo of the tram at the relatively new City Center development. As Mark noted in an email, the whole scene has a nice Jetsons feel to it.

  1. Adding to calwatch, despite its sleek look this tram is pulled by cables like a horizontal elevator.

  2. It’s not the Las Vegas Monorail, rather it is the City Center tram, a completely different system. The Las Vegas Monorail is a bankrupt failure because it is too long yet doesn’t go to the airport or Downtown, and connects the back of the casinos. This is a traditional double rail tram that connects Bellagio on the north, Monte Carlo on the south, and City Center in the middle.
