La Paz’s next urban gondola, the Brown Line (Spanish: Línea Café) will welcome its first passenger this Thursday. President Evo Morales will partake in special event to celebrate the opening of the city’s ninth transit ropeway.

With a length of just 714m and just two stations, it will be the shortest cable car. Nevertheless, the system will provide an essential last mile connection for riders living in the Miraflores and Villa San Antonio community. While the President will become the first rider, it seems like actual passenger service will not begin until the new year.

The Mi Teleférico system continues to win accolades worldwide and recently was a recipient of the LATAM Smart City Award. With more than 250,000 daily passengers, the urban gondolas have significantly improved the lives of thousands of commuters.

The world’s largest network of public transit gondolas will continue to grow in the next two years as the Silver Line (2.6km) and Gold Line (2.2km) are scheduled to open in 2019 and 2020 respectively.
