New Urban Gondola “Discovered”: The Manizales Metrocable

I don’t know how (or why) this happens (take Rio, for example), but somehow the Metrocable in Manizales, Colombia has completely slipped under the collective radar of the english-speaking world – for the last 2 years!

From the little we currently understand, the Manizales Metrocable opened in 2009, system carries 1,400 pphpd, has three total stations and cost roughly $27M USD. We can’t locate any system length.

As usual, any help from Gondola Project readers would be greatly appreciated. Take a look:
