Last Friday, Dean Evaniak, presented his idea on a CPT system for reconnecting Buffalo’s waterfront. He has made an interesting case for utilizing this technology in the city by clearly laying out and comparing the benefits and limitations of cable systems versus other options for waterfront transit.
Based on a preliminary read, the proposal seems to have much merit and there appears to be countless opportunities to enhance the area’s transport connectivity via CPT. In particular, I like how he kept the ideas open ended, thus sparking much discussion and debate on the proposal’s feasibility.
I won’t go into too much detail of his plans as he does a great job in explaining his concept in the original article.
