Mexico’s First Urban Ropeway is Now a Reality

Post by Advertorial Team

Mexicable 1

Commuting in Ecatepec de Morelos, a district of 1.7 million residents located 25km northeast of Mexico City, will never be the same again. On October 4, 2016, the Mexican President along with LEITNER Ropeways celebrated the opening of a new 5km, 7 station urban cable car.

In the past, commuters in Ecatepec de Morelos spent up to 50 minutes travelling in congested roads. However, with the Mexicable cable car, travel times are now reduced to less than 19 minutes — helping save residents about 377 hours each year!

The state-of-the-art ropeway was built with LEITNER’s DirectDrive design, the first time this technology was installed in North America. With DirectDrive, the gearless drive system improves efficiency, lowers noise levels and reduces operating costs. Nevertheless, the cable car is more than just transportation. The project team hired international and local designers to transform stations into works of art as part of a campaign to enhance the community’s public spaces.
