  • By 2014, Ankara will soon be home to another urban gondola. This 3.2km system will have 106 cabins with a capacity of 2,400 pphpd. Once opened, it will serve the Şentepe neighbourhood and will be located near Yenimahalle metro station. Based on renderings, the stations may be one of the most architecturally stunning urban CPT lines yet.
  • Reports suggest that the La Paz Cable Car system will be ready for passenger usage starting in the first quarter of 2014. It is not entirely clear at this time which of the 3 lines will be operational first. However, it seems that locations for some towers have yet to be finalized and officials are still looking to find the appropriate solutions to minimize impact on traffic and land use.
