A monorail is a distinctive railway where the trains run on one single rail, often suspended above streets.

Monorails are often included as transportation within a bigger tourist attraction, for example a theme park or zoo. However, this tag should not be used for roller coasters, which are instead mapped with roller_coaster=track and attraction=roller_coaster

How to map

Use this tag on a way representing the railway tracks of the monorail route.
