The manager of La Paz’s Mi Teleférico urban gondola system, César Dockweiler, officially announced that the city will open its fifth urban gondola system, the Orange Line (Spanish: Línea Naranja) on September 29. This is a (few) week(s) ahead of schedule as the system’s original inauguration date was supposed to be in October.

Once opened, this means that three Cable Propelled Transit lines will be connected together. With improved connectivity, passengers on the Blue Line’s (Spanish: Línea Azul) western terminus, Wana Jawira station in El Alto, can travel through 9.7km of urban gondolas via the Red Line before arriving at the Orange Line’s eastern terminus, Villarroel.

The cable car operator has invited all residents to celebrate this momentous occasion by gathering at Plaza Villaroel, the Orange Line’s eastern terminus and future interchange station with the White Line (Spanish: Línea Blanca).
