Weekly Roundup: Gondola Database, Gondola Rides and More!


Not exactly an urban gondola but here's a new cable car ride on the Canton Tower in China. Via LifeinGuangzhou.

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

  • What’s your vision of New York in 2040? This author sees gondolas!
  • Review of the new Rio Cable Car from a layman’s perspective. Hopefully with more Urban Gondola systems around the world, less people will refer to them as “Carny Grade Transit” no matter how hilarious it sounds.
  • And finally, a must see for all you CPT junkies out there – another online gondola database! I know..it’s pretty sweet.

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

  • India’s Jammu and Kashmir governments submit plans for the Patnitop Hill gondola – the first of its kind in that region of India.
  • Opponents of the Vancouver/Burnaby Mountain urban gondola arm themselves – with chalk.

Given the amount of rain Vancouver experiences, maybe chalk wasn't the best protest tool available. Image via Burnaby Now.

    Weekly Roundup

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

    • It appears that the London Thames Cable Car may not be ready in time for next year’s Olympic Games an odd development as it was originally conceived specifically because of the Olympics. That may not actually be a bad thing, however, as it may force authorities to ensure that it is fully fare-integrated into the London transport system. For more on this, check out Londonist.

    Did we say “few highlights?” We meant “one highlight.” Very little going on this week.
