Since Santo Domingo broke ground on the Caribbean’s first urban cable car two years ago, locals have been patiently waiting for the system to open its doors for passenger service. Despite a few delays, construction works for the Santo Domingo Cable Car (Spanish: Teleférico de Santo Domingo) have been accelerated in recent times.

Reports and photos from the Dominican Republic’s capital suggest that construction crews are labouring day and night in order to complete all civil, electromechanical and implementation works by year’s end.

Once finished, the cable car is expected to benefit up to 287,000 locals, of which 65% do not own a personal vehicle. The 4-station, 5km cable car will reduce commute times by 30 minutes and provide users with a direct connection to the Eduardo Brito Metro station at the Gualey terminal.
