Singapore has one connecting Harbourfront terminal with Sentosa Island. It is for tourists use. Commuters and tourists will also likely use the "Sentosa Express" monorail when it is finished (probably this year).

It's not exactly within the city, but about 50 minutes from Kuala Lumpur up in the hills there is a cableway between Genting Sampah and Genting highlands resorts...

Cheers, m

The highest and second largest Aerial Tramway in the World

The highest and second largest Aerial Tramway in the world

The whole aerial tramway of Mérida City, Venezuela is a system of four (4) aerial tramway in series, that facilitates a displacement of 12.5 km of distance to surpass the existing unevenness among the city of Mérida (1640 m) and Espejo Peak (4765 m). Built in the 50's, it's still considered the highest and was the largest tourist aerial tramway for a long time in the world.

Link with the image of this system in google earth views:

The longest ropeways were mainly built to link industries.

One about 90 km in length (60 miles) has been built somewhere in Northern Europe, another of about the same length has eben built in Somalia or Eritrea.

Yes but in this case is the largest for touristic use, specifically.

Besides, it's a Record Guinness.

It was 96 km and built in northern Sweden for a mine company and later scrapped, a 13 km section was preseved and is still open as a tourist ropeway, Guinness previously ranked that one as the longest.

Since when that system was transformed in a touristic ropeway???...do you have any link about this?.

Well, but likewise the Merida's Teleferico conserve the title of highest aerial tramway in the world, and second place in lenght is a good place to being built in the 50's, i'm so proud of it

It was built 1943 and used until 1987 when it was decided that using trucks would be cheaper. After that it was closed down except for a 13 km section used only for tourists since 1989.

I believe though that the claim on the advert you posted a pic of is correct, the one in Sweden wasn't built for passenger use and never intended either, it rather by chance became a touristic ropeway when enthusiasts and locals wanted to improve tourism, and only after it was closed down as an industial transporter.

Wow, impressive! That's a gain of about 10,000 ft between the lowest elevation to the highest point of the tram ride. How long does it take the 7.4 mile tram ride?

Near Bolzano/Bozen, Italy, there is a single ropeway (with two cabins, like in Merida) more than 4 km in lenght. It's a single ropeway, and not divided into more ropeways like Merida. Search Rittnerbahn or Rittnerseilbahn with Google. It will be replaced by a gondola ropeway.

About this ropeway: http://www.funivie.org/pagine/raduni..._FNV_renon.htm

MISC | Gondolas/Aerial Tramways for Transit

Most Gondolas/Aerial Tramways exist as tourist attractions, but some are being utilized in transit applications. Examples include the following.

Portland, Oregon
New York City (Roosevelt Island), New York
La Paz, Bolivia
Medellin, Columbia
Caracas, Venezuela
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The La Paz line is reported as having a ridership of 100,000 passengers per day, which exceeds the ridership of most light rail lines in the United States.

Teleférico do Alemăo in Rio de Janeiro is an example of a transit aerial tramway (ropeway).
I had the chance to ride this a couple years ago and absolutely loved the experience. The favela (slum) it was built over has the reputation for being very unsafe so many tourists and foreigners don't ride this.

No doubt it varies based on the model. Photos of the La Paz system show three passengers on a bench, so there is room for at least six, maybe eight passengers. That doesn't sound like much, but the capsules arrive every twelve seconds.
