What is a Monorail System? A Quick Way to Know

Ever think to yourself that you'd like to take a ride on a monorail and worry about ending up being overwhelmed with a monorail system? What exactly is a monorail system?


You might be surprised to learn there is a quick way to know what a monorail system is and how to navigate it to enjoy your journey.


A Monorail System is a Fancy Term for Everything Monorail


A Monorail System is the entire collection of monorails and the beams which they use. Most monorail systems are composed of beams, monorails (the trains individually) and the stations where passengers wait to board and exit.


If you think about each individual monorail, they are distinguished by a color, number or name. For example there is the Tokyo Disney Resort Monorails and they distinguish their trains by color. A very popular monorail is the peach monorail.


Going a step further, the stops of the monorail is at the stations. This is where the passengers get on and off. Each station has a name so it is easy for people to find and access the monorail. For example, the Chongquig Rail Transit in China has a monorail station in a 19th-story residential building and this station is called the Liziba Station.


The monorail stations are always on the same beams or route. So the Liziba Station is on what is known as Line 2. No matter what monorail shows up for the passengers, everyone knows they can get back to the Liziba Station if they take Line 2 home.


So when people talk about a monorail system, it simply means the monorail, the monorail stations and the beams (the route which the monorail moves on) which is established for passengers to use. Sometimes, however it's very rare, the monorail system includes the monorail garage and mechanic shop.


A monorail system is very important to know if you are going to a location. There are maps to show how the monorail systems work and it's always suggested to pick on up to help you on your journey!
