futuristic monorail system in albany berkeley el cerrito kensington?

what do people think of a futuristic monorail system that could connect albany berkeley el cerrito and kensington all together,in some portions it could run underground such as solano and then other portions like pacific east mall and arlington streets it could run above ground?


lines could go up san pablo down to gilman through terrace park, st marys college and then hopkin shopping district, also there could be a line that could go to colusa circle and another line that goes on arlington all the way to moeser and has a stop on ardemore also a stop at colusa circle

Update 2:

red line

point richmond(terminus)

pacific east mall

    It would certainly be convenient. But how/who is going to pay for it? BART already connects those cities and there's not enough ridership on BART as it is, so don't think enough peo-ple will be riding your mono to pay for it once established.

    Nice dream though.

    Well, it didn't work-out when they tried it in Ogdenville, North Haverbrook, and Brockway so I'm not sure how effective it would be in the East Bay.
