Aerial Transite

We have the Roosevelt Island Tram. nbewly renovated as it is.

Nevertheless, Latin American is ahead in this game, with “Rio de Janeiro is about to become the third major city in South America to open a Cable Propelled Transit system”.

Built by the Leitner-Poma group, the system has some impressive stats:

3.4 km long
Two terminals and 4 intermediary stations – a total of six stations, the highest yet for an Urban Gondola system.
Three (possibly four) turns/corners
Line capacity of 3,000 persons per hour per direction (pphpd)
