Fresno is a perfect location for a monorail. The growth
of the city has expanded its boundaries three-fold in the past 30 years.
Freeways stretching in every direction add to the outward expansion and
only lend themselves to traffic jams, mass construction areas and daily
accidents that result in injury or death.
The Fresno Area Sky Train will benefit Fresno, Clovis and the surrounding
areas in many ways. Some benefits are obvious and some are possibilities
that you may not realize.

- Security is provided at all stations and also by
drivers of the shuttle buses. These natural gas or electrically ran
shuttles are driven by trained security officers that provide a safe experience and a convenient ride to the nearest monorail station.
- Fresno will become an overnight tourist draw. People
have a fascination with monorails because they are still considered
futuristic, even though they have been in operation for over 100 years!
That translates into more money being spent within the local economy
and possible outside investors taking the city of Fresno more seriously.
- Air quality is always an issue in Fresno. The monorail
will contribute ZERO particles to the already saturated valley air.
Instead it will convince citizens and visitors to leave their cars at
home or hotel in favor of a fast, reliable and cool ride to their destination.
Look for many more reasons to ride the monorail in the near future!
