Monorail Lime is currently testing a new passenger compartment configuration. The new style completely removed the center divider and has 4 spread out rails for guests to hold onto. This should theorhetically make it easier for guests to enter with wheelchairs and strollers.
Previously, several monorails had their fold-down seating removed from the center divider. This allowed more footspace, but did not really solve the problems caused by the center divider. The project was abandoned and some monorails still have the fold-down seats, though they are not functional.
If the new test with Lime proves successful, it should expand to the other monorails. As it stands, the WDW monorail fleet is a mix of the various styles and attempts at increased capacity.
