Gondolas as Mass Transit

Posted by on Dec 1, 2012 in Uncategorized | No Comments

An article posted in the Atlantic Cities show’s a gondola network for Austin Texas. (Forget Subways, Austin Needs Gondolas) The two major advantages of this type of network according to the article are upstart cost, as well as the ability to add more gondolas as demand increases. The technology has been used in other cities, but never on the scale of a transportation network, more as a means to get from point a to point b. I think it is a neat idea however I am unsure at how well it would work in practice.
