The city of Santiago is bringing back ropeway transportation

The San Cristobal aerial tramway, built in the 80s, was entirely renovated by POMA in 2016 after having been closed for over seven years.

It now takes seven minutes to reach the summit of Mount San Cristobal, at an altitude of 860 meters. It's an excellent way to see Santiago from up high, this impressive capital city with seven million inhabitants spread along the Andes. The 44 six-passenger cabins (16 red, 16 blue and 12 green) with standard options for urban transportation: solar pannels that supply the LED lighting system, reinforced ventilation system, and UV filters on the glazing. In addition to the cabins, the ropeway is equipped with eight bike carriers.

Line length: 2 km - Capacity: 1,000 pers/h - Vertical rise: 200 m - Speed: 6 m/s
