Weekly Roundup: First Urban Cable Car (Line Red) Opens in La Paz, Bolivia

A quick look at some of the things that happened this week in the world of cable cars, urban gondolas and cable propelled transit:

  • The Sea to Sky Gondola in Squamish, BC is scheduled to start admitting its first patrons on May 16. The system will provide passengers with easy access to the stunning views from Stawamus Chief.
  • And decades before La Paz started building their massive urban cable network, Chiatura in Georgia apparently already built 13 miles (20 km) on 32 lines back in the 1950s. While many of the lines are in major disrepair, city officials are now looking for assistance to rebuild four systems.
