The Eyup-Pierreloti seems to be both an automatic and pulsée cableway. Have you more informations?

Bolzano/Bozen (Italy) has two suburban cableways used also for normal transport. One is one of the longest "one-trunk" cableways, with two cabioins going "back and forth" for about 4 km.

Caracas has one that goes to the top of the Avila. I dont know if its currently operational (last I was there, in 1998, only the one on the other side, down towards the ocean, was being used)

the correct name for them is "gondola" or most correctly "cableway."

Just realize Banff doesn't have 100k people, so I'll post photos of Barcelona's Montjuic cable car (towers in the background) :

I believe you are mixing up the Montjuic cableway and the cableway across the waterfront.

Montjuic is this one:

There used to be one in Sarajevo before the war. Now, since the mountain is mostly demined, I believe it will be rebuilt again. During the 1984 games, the bobsled event was held on the mountain (Trebevic)
