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.
