Cable Cars

Post by Steven Dale

Now that we’ve wrapped our discussion of the eight major Aerial Technologies that exist in the cable transit world, we’re going to shift our focus next week to Cable Cars.

The technologies – most familiar as San Francisco’s rickety old vehicles – have made dramatic advances in the last 15 years. But like aerial systems, Cable Cars have a wide range of shapes, styles and models; each with specific strengths and weaknesses in any given application or environment.

And if you thought aerials were complicated, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Below are the six major technologies:

  • Historical Cable Cars
  • MiniMetros
  • Cable Shuttle Liners
  • Dual Cable Shuttle Liners
  • By-Pass Shuttle Liners
  • Pinched Loop Cable Liners (with Turntables, Loops or Switches)
