NYT: Subway in the Sky – La Paz

Even though we’re now seeing more and more Cable Propelled Transit (CPT) systems being implemented around the world, mainstream North American media has, arguably, paid little attention to urban gondola lifts.

This past weekend, however, New York Times flew their correspondents down to La Paz and documented the city’s Red Line, — or what they cleverly termed, “Bolivia’s Subway in the Sky”.

They even made a short film about it and interviewed locals what they thought of their brand new cable car.

The article is a wonderful inside look into how the cable system is not only transforming the city’s public transit network, but how a cable car line is actively breaking down cultural and social stigmas.
