The opening of the Las Vegas Monorail won't happen until sometime this summer because of testing delays. “When you pay $650 million for a system, you want it to be a first-class system,” Jim Gibson, chairman and CEO of monorail manager Transit Systems Management told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “We've probably been a little picky, but this is not all that forgiving a venue.” Officials still hope to break ground on a $450 million northward extension before the end of this year and eventually to extend the system to McCarran International Airport.
