Jacksonville’s Monorail!?

Officially known as the Skyway. First opened in 1989 and overhauled in 1997 – located in downtown Jacksonville (Florida). It serves a limited area from near Florida State College at Jacksonville to the convention center and crosses the St. Johns River along the Acosta Bridge to the Southbank. ¬†Also known by a handful of “colorful” local names, it is Jacksonville’s attempt at an automated people mover.


Running north just under the elevated tracks.


Headed north to the Rosa Parks Transit Station.


At the Rosa Parks Transit Station.

It was free to ride courtesy of the Jacksonville Transit Authority for a time while they worked on a plan for payment. Ridership jumped nearly 61% as one would imagine! Estimates are as many as 5,000 people ride it everyday.

Thanks for stopping by!
