Kobe Portliner and the Rokko liner are not monorails and are properly called Automated ( no drivers) guided transit. They have sets of wheels on each side of the cars. The wheels (with rubber tires) run on flat concrete tracks within a U shaped concrete funnel.
A monorail runs above or under a single concrete (or steel) beam an always has a driver.
