Masts and rail elements can be given a surface and a shape which makes it an exciting aesthetic element in the busy wide street. Street lights can be integrated into the rail, so they disappear visually.

The guideway can also be used as a visual element. Vancouver is proud of its SkyTrain crossing the water. The possibility for a RUF rail to have steep grades (20%) makes it possible to make solutions to pressing transportation needs.

The rail network could serve as an aesthetic element at the entrance to the old part of a city. A city-port could be shaped to become part of the skyline of this city (Copenhagen).
