If you thought gondolas were only for skiing, you’d be mistaken. Join us for a presentation by Doppelmayr to see how modern ropeways are being integrated into various cities networks to provide a truly integrated and sustainable transport solution. Is now the time for New Zealand to discover transport on another level?

Abstract

Modern transport networks are shaped by passenger’s needs and requirements coming from discussions around sustainability, multi­modality and smart cities. As cities grow, their transport networks need to develop to meet the increasing demand for the population’s mobility. This development does not only mean growth but also requires adaptation and change to meet new demands.

Ropeways have been using the same mobility solution for centuries, and more so as an urban mobility solution in the last 20 years. Doppelmayr will take you on a journey around the world to demonstrate how modern ropeways are integrated into various cities networks, providing a safe, accessible, resilient and sustainable transport solution. We’ll visit urban ropeways in Bolivia, Colombia, Germany, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Finally, we will take you through our vision of the future, showing how technology is being integrated into ropeways to provide a truly integrated and sustainable transport solution.

Ropeway benefits have seen the concept proven around the world. Is now the time for New Zealand to discover transport on another level?
