Why aren't we riding these in our cities today?

They were billing monorails as the transportation mode of the future back then.

Monorail fortunes, which made a strong forward step in Seattle in 1962,  didn't do itself much good by allowing 1964 AMF entry to be displayed with the midway rides.  Rather than circle the fairgrounds and/or serve as some form of visitor transportation, it was merely an attraction, a carnival ride.  It didn't sell itself as a dynamic and possible transport system of the future.  And here we are 55 years later with monorails more of a curiosity than a significant form of mass transit.
