I am a huge fan of Monorail. I do not like the fact that Seattle is getting monorail and light rail and how stupid to have two different kinds of technology? Especially when monorail’s ongoing costs are much less, yes it is more expensive to build, but far less to maintain. Just do a search on monorail technology and you’ll see the benefits. Sound transit (Seattle Metro’s transit authority) has not answered the monorail question as it says it has. I would do a lot of linking to all my resources but I’m not feeling well so maybe later, believe me it is there. Here is one article that represents my view precisely.
