AN URBAN GONDOLA UNVEILED FOR THE CHICAGO SKYLINE BOOSTING CHICAGO’S TOURISM



They are great as a tourist attraction much like the Emirates Air Line in London which isn't a popular transport option but is used by tourists and to link the concert arena to the hotels and exhibition centre at the otherside of the river.

Sounds like Tugade is hell-bent on implementing his cable cars (gondolas) by mid next year. He only needs to get approval by the end of the year.

Btw, plans like these are not sequential according to the Budget secretary. Other projects like the Clark rail, MRT, PNR, LRT etc. are going to be "simultaneously" tackled.

DOTr mulls cable car system in Metro Manila
Quote:
Transport Undersecretary for rails Noel Kintanar told reporters the department is conducting studies for putting up cable cars to address the worsening traffic on roads. “We’re doing the studies,” he said.

According to the 100 Days Accomplishment Report of the Transport department, the areas of Pasig River, Boracay and Baguio have been identified for the operations of the cable cars.

The department is also exploring the possibility of securing technical assistance or funding for a feasibility study for the cable cars from the French government.

For now I think this urban gondola is unecessary, why not focus on the existing mass transportation issues first, before adding more?

Again, these issues will be tackled "concurrently".


We got used to the previous administration's sequential tackling of issues

Govt to pursue 3 cable car projects
Quote:
The Transportation Department is seeking an assistance from the French government to finance the feasibility study for the construction of three cable cars in the country.

Transportation Undersecretary for rail and tollways Noel Kintanar said the government was exploring technical assistance from France to fund the feasibility study to build cable cars.

Kintanar said the agency identified Pasig River, Boracay and Baguio as locations for the cable cars. “We are doing the study,” he said.

The proposed cable cars aim to address traffic congestion at Edsa. The Japan International Cooperation Agency estimated that the daily cost of traffic in Metro Manila reached P2.4 billion.

Cable cars are perfect for Boracay and most especially Baguio.

So Leitner has 20-seater gondolas! I wonder if that translates to more passengers moved per hour per direction than the teleferico (8-seater) in Bolivia...

It requires more than studying different modes of transportation but also, how to manage public/mass transit, traffic, and road use. He has to look at population densities, road densities, direction of the flow of people, and growth patterns to be able to decide which is the best mode to use.

Agree 100%. Gondolas are great to replace jeepneys! but it isn't mass transit enough. However, if they are obsessed with putting up gondolas, they should put in where it will create the greatest benefit according to terrain.

Baguio is probably a good place to do this with a few lines. Cebu is another good place to do it, from the Top to Banilad (?), and those communities on the slopes of the mountain to below. I don't know about Boracay, what for? In Manila, population density requires MASS transit, the gondola is not mass transit enough. I'd rather they install AGTs in Manila, it is quicker, faster and can take in more people.

Or earthquake? I don't know how the gondola is faring in Chicago, the windy city.

The plan is to connect Caticlan Airport to Boracay. It will facilitate fast movement of tourists so instead of taking a trike from the airport to the jetty and a boat from the jetty to Boracay, it will be just one gondola ride away.

Also, cable cars are good for tourism, so this plan is perfect for Boracay.

Teleferico does NOT allow baggage and maleta on board. Ski gondolas, only you and your skis. Think about the planeload of passengers with their wheelie bags. Free shuttle bus from airport to the jetty instead of trikes and jeepneys?

The banca ride is part of the "thrill" and excitement of going to Boracay. In the very old days, the bancas would drop you off at the different stations (1,2,3). First time I went there over 2 decades ago, a couple of Scandinavian teens, just jumped off the banca and into the water as soon as the banca hit the beach. That is Boracay. It's not Disneyland. Btw., did you know the first outrigger canoes, the bancas, paraus first made its appearance when the Austronesians reached the PH islands? That's a couple of thousands of years ago. Before that and beyond Luzon, they used/use canoes without the outriggers.

A few decades ago, I think it was a Swiss company suggested a gondola from the Tagaytay ridge to Taal island. I fyou're talking about tourism impact, that would have far superior tourism impact (not only from the superlative view) than Boracay.

DOTr should spend a lot more time in needs assessment and evaluating the different modes when and how to apply these transpo solutions.

Last week, a gondola system or téléphérique in Frensh, was opened in Brest, in the West of France. This can transport up to 60 people in one cabine. I think, this number is much more than the most gondola's used in ski area's. This is more close to a monorail or a city bus.
