Yawn: Nobody is riding the monorail

For the umpteenth time since the Las Vegas Monorail debuted, the proud owners of the overprice piece of spacejunk have announced that ridership has plunged yet again - down 30% over last years dismal numbers.

Reasons why nobody rides the monorail:

1) It dosen't go to the airport
2) It's $5 bucks a pop - ONE WAY! Public transporation is cheaper in every city in the universe.
3) It isn't fun. Putting Star Trek characters on the train with you isn't going to help.
4) $5 bucks a pop times a family of 4 = NOT WORTH IT
5) "Wanna take the monorail back to my room?" is a lousy pick up line.

Comments & Discussion:

At $5 a pop, two people can go nearly anywhere along the strip in my taxi and not have to walk two blocks (or more) at the start and end of their trip.

Walking in Vegas is Evil! I try to keep it to a minimum. If I'm not staying at a hotel that I want to spend the majority of my time, and has enough things to keep me occupied, then I wont even make the trip to Vegas.

Monorails are for amusement parks.
