Installation and Operation of the Seattle Monorail System 620160

The Seattle Monorail was built to demonstrate its potential as a rapid mass transportation media. Installed in conjunction with the World’s Fair, the route extends from the fairgrounds to the central business district. Constructed in one of the city’s main downtown streets, the work progressed while maintaining nearly normal traffic flow. Structural and construction features of the supporting units are described. Data and information on the rolling stock is included. The completed system represents a new approach to high volume passenger movement in urban areas.
