JACKSONVILLE PARKS MONORAIL SYSTEM?

FOOD FOR THOUGHT - SOMETHING TO DO IN THE RIVER CITY BY THE SEA

Located in Japan, yet another mini-monorail system that would hold fantastic opportunities for our parks or our "Riverwalk". Imagine being able to take the family down to this thing and tour the waterfront with more ease then a bicycle ride. In this case - steel wheel on steel rail = almost no friction. The function could be not unlike the New Zealand system, and perhaps without the glass pod, heat would not be a problem in the summer.

We shall continue to watch for inexpensive ways to improve the quality of life in Jacksonville through advanced transit and mobility ideas, so keep watching for future posts.

TAKE A FREE TOUR OF THE JACKSONVILLE SKYWAY

The arguments rage to this date, "Should have never been built," "waste of taxpayer money," "Doesn't go anywhere," "Nobody rides it..." etc. Bottom line is we have it, and it is finally showing signs of life. Simple extensions to the Stadium, San Marco, and the area of Blue Cross in North Riverside would turn this little train around. Addition of Park and Ride garages and multimodal transit terminals at the end points would bring on the crowds. The video must have been shot on a Sunday Morning, as downtown is certainly as packed with life as any other major City on weekdays. Jacksonville is a city of Bikes, joggers, walkers, buses and cars, one almost wonders how the photographer managed to find this quiet moment.
