High Speed Gondolas for transit

Dan Levy Head of City Realty has envisioned a bold plan for an aerial network connecting Manhattan, Queens, and Brooklyn with a Gondola system. He says a gondola would be easier, faster, and cheaper to build than a new subway line. According to the Skyway’s designers, it would also cut down commute times by up to half an hour. This zero emission mode of transportation has been adopted in big cities like London and Rio and on the largest scale in Bolivia.

The project is still in the conceptual phase and is planned in three phases.
