A quick look at some of the things that happened this week in the world of cable cars, urban gondolas, and cable propelled transit:
- Potosi, a city of 240,000 residents in Bolivia may be the next municipality in the country to implement a cable car. This week, it officially launched a tender for a public transit and tourism cable system.
- A proposed cable car project connecting Dasyueshan National Forest in Taichung, Taiwan hopes to spur tourism but environmental groups are concerned over its impacts on wildlife.
- Think you got a great slogan that describes Koblenz (Germany) in less than 5 words (max 31 letters)? If so, the Koblenz Rheinseibalhn (Seilbahn Koblenz) is looking for you! Submit your proposal and if you’re chosen, not only will your catchphrase be displayed on the gondola cabin, you’ll also get a free season pass!
