I noticed in the video there is also a system to slow down the cabins in more hard stretches (too curvy or too hilly ones): the cabin didn't run at the same speed in the whole run...

There is only one cable. It is moved continuosly at the same speed in a loop, thus the vehicles travel at the same speed of the cable, except at stations, where they are detached and moved by rubber wheels, like in automatic aerial ropeways or chairlifts.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I think cabins got an authomatic release control of the cable not only before the stops at the stations, but even in sone other branch, to slow down
That was my impression watching the video of the run: the cabin apparently seems to slow down sometimes between the stations... but probably it was a wrong impression

I studied this in a transport planning course in Turin (Italy) and I love the idea of a cable-metro. More news about the project?

This is sooo cool system! It's maybe not that effective like the full metro but it shows that there are new ways to think about urban transport. Awesome!
I hope the second line will be build soon!

Cable car systems (but the DCC models do not grab and release the cable and appear to be limited to one train per track moving back and forth):

Yet there is no on csll service, the trains run at specific headways, so you can't really consider it as a people mover such as the one in W Va, correct?

I love the architecture of the stations - contemporary without being sterile. The roof overhangs are a nice feature.

Here are some more photos:

What is the capacity of each car and how frequently do they arrive?

Yes, I think this is the only system in the word. Great idea!

There was the SK system in Paris (Roissy/CDG airport and a short 2-stations urban line), where the cehicles were detached at stations just like Perugia. But this system never worked correctly and was demolished before being opened to the public.

Shuttles going back and fforth on a single track are more common, especially the ones built by Doppelmayr (DCC.at).

I just discovered they're planning to build something like that for Bovisa district (in Milan)

Actually it will be a PRT (Personal Rapid Transit) to link railways stations, University and research departments

Are you speaking about the old project to connect Zara metro station (lines 3 and the future line 5) with Greco F.S and Turro (line 1)?
