MEXICO CITY — Mexico City’s ministry of science, innovation and technology this year is expected to launch a revolutionary prototype for a new public transit system that looks like a fancy ski lift suspended above the streets, Fusion reported.

Each gondola unit will be fully automated and can be individually programmed to whisk users directly to their final destination without making local stops, according to the project’s planners, the report said.



The system, known as the “Personalized Elevated Urban Transport” (or TUEP in Spanish), promises to move some 37 million people across the city each year, and up to 200 million if the system is extended to longer distances, according to Fusion.
