Cable Car, Tramway and Gondola / Planning and Engineering

Eco-Transit offers unique qualifications to clients for diverse types of gondola consulting and cable car projects and the interfacing of these cable propelled transit systems with other modes of surface and automated guideway transit along with potential mixed use development at at stations. Our gondola engineering specialties consultant group gives special attention to Transit Oriented Development (TOD) and local neighborhood improvement opportunities within the ACT Aerial Cable Transit project areas, such as mixed use residential and commercial development around the stations, and community centers and transit hubs to link with other transit modes. This urban planning focus of Eco-Transit concentrates on community retail revenue generators and also social enrichment generators such as art and photographic galleries, cultural exhibits, local historical exhibits, walking tours, craft centers, and reading rooms. An attention to these types of creative urban projects and to the planning details associated with the layout of the Aerial People Mover routes and station locations can minimize adverse impacts and maximize the socio-economic benefits to the surrounding neighborhood when the gondola projects are developed and built out.

We have extensive experience with the design, planning and study of aerial ropeways from one half mile to five miles in length with interconnections to other transit modes and with both simple stations and intermodal transit stations with associated mixed use development. We have also studied numerous gondola alignments that climb steep inclines, run along flat terrain, travel above city roadways, and cross over waterways, highways and other rights of way. The environmental benefits of this specialized form of “Green Transit” are showcased in our feasibility studies and designs for resort, attraction, and urban gondola ropeway projects.
