And wasn't he proposing a train to Santiago?

Its not typo. I checked on hoy.com.do it states:

" The President of the Republic, Luis Abinader, reported today on the extension of lines I and II of the Santo Domingo Metro and the construction of the new line III, which would reach the Las Américas International Airport. "

There's a little bit of confusion in that article-the cable car from Km 9 to Los Alcarrizos is what was originally planned if I'm not mistaken; I'm not sure why they would need a monorail too.
