Roosevelt Island Tram

Post by Steven Dale

New York’s famous Roosevelt Island Tram will be closing this spring for a complete overhaul. The system, built in the late 70’s is one of the few public CPT systems in North America and recently became fully-integrated into that city’s transit system. So if any of you are in NY in the next month, take the time to check out what is a truly unique system. It’s well worth it.

If you don’t have the chance, the wonderful video below should give you an idea of what it’s like.
