A few highlights from around the world of Urban Gondolas, Gondola Transit, and Cable Propelled Transit:

  • New 3S gondola project (in Italian) is being proposed in Plose, Italy. It’s expected to connect the city center and a railway station to serve both tourists and skiers. Seems that little information is available in English, any additional details would be great. Thanks goes to Giorgio for the link! 
  • Did you know that Switzerland’s oldest operating gondola (in French) ride dates back to 1906? It’s in Heimwehfluh Interlaken and is still operating without any reconstruction!
  • News reports state that the Emirates Air Line (aka Thames Gateway Cable Car) in London is scheduled to open on May 1, just in time for the Olympics.
  • Stephen Rees provides an insightful analysis and commentary on the recent Burnaby Gondola business case
