MONO RAIL VS METRO RAIL


KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MONORAIL AND METRO RAIL


MONO RAIL
METRO RAIL
Monorail and Metro Rail are the efficient and fast means of public transport. However both are different in design, cost and infrastructure.

MONO RAIL
METRO RAIL
It runs on single rail It  runs on two parallel rails just as traditional rails.
It runs on a single line laid on a beam in the air it has an independent rail track but it has two rails and may not be high in the air.
monorail is narrower than the train itself It runs underground, on ground and over the ground. It uses two rails to run.
Mono rail uses the principal of magnetic levitation. metro rail uses the traditional approach. However it uses independent line.
It is called magnetic levitation as the train looks to be running in the air. Electricity is used as energy to run it

MONO RAIL:

Ø  Monorails were developed in order to connect two places where material must be transported without any delay and obstacle. It originated in the 50’s. .

Ø  First of all Japan developed it further in order to solve the problem of heavy traffic jams.

Ø  Hundreds of thousand passengers travel in monorail daily in Tokyo.

Ø  The train is originated in Germany

Ø  There looks a gap between wheels ate the rail.

Ø  It is the fastest running train in the world. Its speed is 500kmph.

METRO RAIL:

Ø  Metro rail is mean of public transport in many big cities of the world.

Ø  It runs underground, on ground and over the ground. It uses two rails to run.

Ø  Some cities of the world which have very successful system of Metro Rail include Shanghai, London, New York, and Delhi.

Ø  It is called metro as it runs mostly in metro cities of the world.

Ø  The major difference between Mono Rail and Metro Rail is regarding their rails. Metro train uses two rails while mono rail uses a single rail.

Ø  metro rail uses the traditional approach. However it uses independent line.

Ø  Metro rails runs slower than monorail.
