The WEDway PeopleMover opened on July 1, 1975, based on the PeopleMover at Disneyland in California.

Blue Line, Red Line, Green Line

Tomorrowland's backstory makes reference to the Transit Authority's three different "lines": the Blue Line, the Red Line, and the Green Line. The Blue Line, which constitutes the actual ride, is Tomorrowland's intra-city transportation system. The Red Line takes riders outside of Tomorrowland to other desitinations in the galaxy, while the Green Line consists of local transportation to Tomorrowland's "Hover-Burbs."
