ABSTRACT
The article discusses the advantage of the monorail system in Las Vegas, Nevada to especially transport visitors up and down Las Vegas Strip. According to Julie Wysocki, a widely traveled wheelchair user finds the monorail fully accessible and has designated spaces for wheelchairs. In addition, the monorail has a fully-automated control network system and has a fail-safe protection throughout the software and equipment. Wysocki added that the fares are well worth it.
