Initial section of this straddle monorail opened 1990. Two routes serving 18 stations. See Osaka network map.

Links Osaka airport and Kadomi-shi across north and northeast Osaka, with four connections to Osaka metro lines. A 6·8 km branch north from Banpaku-Kinen-Kōen to Saito-nishi (the Saito line) serves Osaka university hospital.

An extension south from Kadoma-shi to Uryudo is planned (9 km, 4 stations). This would provide interchange with two more Osaka metro lines, and the Osaka − Kintetsu Nara Line.
