Gary Munkhoff at the Green Living Journal PDX blog believes that Portland, Oregon deserves to have Shweeb human-powered monorails as an addition to Portland's current Tri-Met transit offerings. Because of a recent Google investment, Munkhoff's desire to see Shweeb in Portland has become a real possibility.

In September 2010, Google invested in research and development for the Shweeb human-powered monorails. Shweeb is now determining the location for its very first public use of the Shweeb transit. Whether Portland will be chosen is yet to be seen. Stats for Pedal Pod Transport (UPDATE) Trending: Older & Average
