Urban Passenger Transportation
Satisfying the needs for mobility in budget-conscious and environmentally conscientious manner.
Today, a great challenge faces municipal authorities and transportation services – they need to satisfy both mobility needs while providing budget-friendly environmentally conscientious solutions. Cable-propelled transit systems fill this need and are becoming a serious option for environmentally-conscious, budget-minded cities. At the same time, they can be an exciting challenge for architects as well as local planning bodies and construction companies.
For a city, the properties of a ropeway are very interesting. Ropeways do not need to much space, can cross over any obstacle and are very time saving. Furthermore, there are no conflicts with other traffic users and one motor is sufficient to move several vehicles.
Ropeways are very useful for the connection of sensitive recreation zones. They are in contact with the ground just punctually and create a minor environmental impact. Urban ropeways bring good views for the passengers in the cabins but also good prospects for the future.
