I didn't get a chance to see Eve's students present their vision for Downtown Pittsburgh, but I note that DNJ covers one part of it that suggests a revival of an old idea: an air tram linking Downtown with the Hill District.  The view from the peak of the Hill is in fact where Pittsburgh aquired its original "Hell" designation

There have been some real proposals to really build new aerial gondolas in town.  The Port Authority once seriously considered a gondola from Downtown to Mount Washington.  25 cents was to be the fare.  I wonder what state funding that would have required and how the SPC vote would have gone?  Not that SPC was around just yet; it's predecessor SPRPC had just gotten going.  Also more recently, just a few years ago there was real talk of a goldola all the way from Mt. Washington to the North Shore.  I'm serious... it was in the news.

Urban gondolas have become a serious public transit technology. In addition to the fun factor, they can offer very short wait times, competitive average speeds and capacities, and can handle topographic challenges (rivers, ravines, hills, and so on) without the need for expensive bridges or tunnels.

Pittsburgh would actually be a great location for urban gondolas, and Oakland in particular would be the logical center of such a system. I have presented a conceptual proposal to that effect here:


Since that was posted I have added some possible extensions in the linked Google map.

The Swiss will have nothing on us if that gets built.

It is really the South Americans we would be competing with--Medellin and Caracas have the two most notable urban gondola systems, and now Rio is building one. Algeria is also building several systems.
