The article expounds on the financial state of the Las Vegas Monorail Co. It states that around 2010 the Las Vegas monorail will be on default. due to the debts the company has accumulated. An extension of the service route from MGM Grand to the McCarran International airport seems a very promising enterprise that could possibly pay-off the company's debts but fiscally infeasible.
