An Easy Way To Help Spread The Idea Of Urban Gondola Transit

The Transit Capacity and Quality of Service Manual

Published by the Transportation Research Board, the Transit Capacity and Quality of Service Manual is a kind of bible for the transit planning industry. I use it constantly.

Now Kittelson & Associates is preparing the 3rd edition of  the manual and they want your help.

By clicking here, you’ll be taken to a survey detailing what you want to see in the upcoming edition.

Why not tell them you want to see more information about Urban Gondolas and Cable Propelled Transit?

Kittleson already talks about CPT solutions in sections 2-27 through 2-35 of their second edition, so it stands to reason they’d talk about it in the third as well.

The second edition, meanwhile, was written in 2003 well before such things as the Caracas, Medellin and Rio Metrocables; the Algerian gondolas; the Portland Aerial Tram; and the rebuilt Roosevelt Island Tram.

Furthermore, the Kittelson Streetwise blog already has a pretty good post on CPT solutions called New Forms of Mass Transit Gaining Steam.

In other words, they’re receptive to the idea. Let’s not let them forget it.

The best part? It only takes 5 minutes to complete the survey.
