I may be delusional, but based on an experience I once had i believe that a monorail is being built in the capital district of NYS. Ideally it will link Albany county, all of its bordering counties and neighboring VT and Mass. This will lower demand for gasoline, thus decreasing price as well as provide less expensive transit for food and other goods lowering price for them. My recommendation in this construction has been mostly heeded, but my vision of it cannot be put into words as i had envisioned more of a conveyor link belt that any car could lock into and ride while in neutral, in addition to rail cars.
Here's hoping. If the rest of my experience is true I will be the one who partially funds the project. Maybe I'm just nuts.
