aerial gondola

Aerial gondola system proposed for Albany, N.Y.

The plan for the city is just one of several aerial cable projects being pitched in cities from Austin, Texas, to Washington, D.C., to solve public transportation problems by going above the existing maze of congested highways, bridges, and rails.

Gondola linking Brooklyn and Manhattan proposed

Plan estimates the gondola would transport 5,000 people per hour in both directions and says it could move commuters from Brooklyn to Manhattan in less than four minutes, with each phase costing between $75 million and $125 million.
